Meaty, bacon, smoky nose which translated exactly into the palate. Nice initial attack and spicy mid palate but then ended on dry tannins and a bit hollow on the short finish. It is certainly enjoyable for the intriguing smokiness but based on this tasting I would say that it is on the decline and its austerity will never soften to reveal more terroir...
Very green, herbaceous nose that was difficult to get past. On the palate a touch of sweetness showed up from the fruit however abruptly cut off by the dryness and semi harsh acidity on the end. This is the first 97 I've tasted of this wine so don't know if this is typical.
Birthday Wines (Kruger's D*ck): 3rd or 4th time trying this and while it isn't necessarily getting any better, this one showed a little fresher. Still plenty of secondary herbal, forest floor things going on, but with a burst of cranberry and raspberry. Nice little mushroom element, baking spices, and high acidity.
