Dark red. Stinky sulphur/smoke then dark cherry. The stink blows off in 15 minutes leaving the cherry with a metallic edge. Very pure fruit, linear, wirey, almost tough. The vintage shows through, in spades! This is just now becoming drinkable. B24 hours later this has pretty perfume, flesh and the tannin is tamed.
Popped and poured; drank half one night and left the rest for the next day. Bright ruby color in the glass. A little bit of red forest fruit on the nose but really, it was quite faint. I taste strawberries, tea and pine needles...but wow, the acidity is what I find most apparent in this one. The next day brought a bit more of the fruit. I highly recommend drinking this with food to put that acid to good use!
