Nach einer Stunde in der Karaffe war er in der Nase zunächst noch sehr speckig und streng. Im Glas entwickelt er sich dann relativ gut und macht Spaß. Schöne Farbe ohne deutlichen Kern, kühles Aroma, starke Stachelbeernote, dezente Frucht, mittlerer Abgang alles in allem sehr sauber. Bald trinken!
Bricking colour still fairly dark for its age, not much sediment in bottle though. Rusty nails/beef blood on the nose, though the wife thought it smelt like brandy. Fruit still present, notes of sour cherry, but getting tired. No hint of wood though, this bottle has certainly seen better days. Still very pleasant to drink.
Tasted with UCBEAU, although I got to it a bit later than everyone else. Smelled like the inside of a dead campfire along with old cherries and mushroom. Tastes dirty and a bit gritty, sun-dried tomato, old book, very faint cherry flavors in the background. Fun as an exercise but pretty tired in my opinion.
