This Trousseau start to "pinote" a little bit. Nice pale color with brickish rim. Very floral. Ripe red cherry with a hint of licorice on the nose along some notes reminding of an old grange. Balanced, not showing any over ripeness. Delicious even if the palate is a little simple.
Alas, this was my last bottle. The tannins are quite strong, obscuring the fruit for the most part. If anyone has any of this left, I'd hold for a couple more years. At the least, decant it an hour or so. I opened it when my Sagrantino was hopelessly closed, and this could have used a similar treatment.
Beautiful pale ruby color with perfect translucence. The nose is strawberry jam smeared on a horse's ass, with fragrant wildflower just outside the barn for good measure. The palate shows ripe cherry and strawberry flavors and a touch of sweetness, yet it's not at all heavy. Ready to drink but not over the hill.
Light glowing salmon ruby. Dark in profile despite the color, with lively cinnamon, mineral, and a suggestion of mixed herb liqueur. Combines a big acid backbone with a sizeable amount of glycerin to create a singular yet satisfying palate impression. The balance tilts towards the refreshment offered by the acidity as the wine finishes.
