  • Mmmh, quite surprising - thought it was dead, but no.

    Very nice red-brown color like I expected.
    Ripe fruit, barrique, prunes, tobacco - herbs and dust with a bit of pencil. Very nice nose.

    On the palate it is quite acid - strong acidity, still with quite a few tannins drying out the mouth. Have to drink with food.

    But as I said - quite surprised about this wine - still alive and kicking!

  • Cf my notes of June-14. This one better, nose cedar, roses. Younger in colour, more fruit , more prominent tannins and acidity - this bottle would have lasted 3-4 yrs more! Again, much better w food than on its own.

  • Dark red with orange rim. Nose of cedar and plum. Soft and moderate fruit. Well integrated tannins. Good lenght. Holding surprisingly well. Still lots of life left , but should be drunk within a year or two.

  • Once again, too restrained when opened - dusty tannins very evident. 3 Hours later, it had softened and showed plums and plum skins at first plus the same cherry/cherry skin fruit described earlier as it opened in the glass.
    Much better with food (ribeye) and drinking really well after 4 hours by which time the bottle was empty.......
    Has life in it yet.

  • Prompted by the comments of others, I thought I had better not hold on to this too long.
    Much relieved to find it still has a good nose, decent 'sweet' fruit and balance with soft integrated tannins.
    I don't think it is going to improve but it is a nice mouthful now, for a 2002. Very good with rare roast beef.
