Getrocknete Lorbeerblätter, Leder, Schwarzkirsche, Pflaume, Nougat, Vollmilchschokolade. Kühlere Stilistik. Am Gaumen hinten raus Minze, Kirsche, Pflaume, Gewürzkuchen. Bereits gereift, aber noch gute Struktur. Sehr feine, gereifte Tannine, mit mittlerer Säure. Mittlerer bis langer Abgang.
Bouquet of dried bay leaves, leather, dark cherries, plums, nougat and milk chocolate. Cooler stylistics. Good structure with medium acidity, fine-grained and ripe tannins, and notes of mint, cherries, plums and gingerbread on the palate. Fully mature. Medium to long-lasting finish.
Beautiful wine. Big on the nose, full flavor and thick flavor. Been drinking several bottles over past year, think it may be at risk for being past prime at some point in the near future. This was my last bottle, time to move on to newer vintages.
This was my last bottle of this vintage, rather forgotten, the others drunk in the late 00's. My earlier notes weren't over favourable so this one was a pleasant surprise. Remarkably deep colour with no hint of age, nose initially closed but opening quickly to plums / damsons and cinnamon. On the palate the tannins were soft but still there giving a good structure with balancing acidity. The fruit persisted with cedar, herby and leather notes. Very pleasant. Did I drink the others too early in the dumb / adolescent phase? WoFW 16/20
