- Purple color with fast forming legs. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of acetic acid, hay/straw, black currant, black pepper and dusty with a light/medium body. Leathery texture with a long finish - Recd this bottle from brother last year. Wait for the second day to enjoy a very nice PN
Looking back at my tasting note from several years ago, I see I had a lot to learn about wine. :)
This wine is terrific! Ponderous and wonderful, needs about 30 minutes to really open up and lose the initial barnyard elements. Floral and spicy depending on the cheese pairing, becomes juicier and more ripe than I recall from past tastings of this vintage. Superb. Still got a few years left at least.
Nice bottle of wine. Cork pristine. Very little bricking -- still medium purple-red. Very earthy aromatics; a number of secondary notes mixed in as well. Those characteristics carry over to the palate as well. One knock is that the wine picks up a bit of pruniness after having been open for a while (i.e., 90 mins or so).
