Very perfumed nose of raspberries, blue fruit and iron. An interesting wine where the fruit was very forward, but the midpalate and finish were lean and a bit dried out. Pleasant enough but not what you would expect from the vintage and producer.
My score seems a bit higher than many peoples', but I have to say that I was absolutely blown away by this bottle... Such depth, concentration and complexity! First of all, at 14 years old, it is still a baby. Huge tannins and structure. We tasted it blind and I guess far far younger than 1999. Dark fruits mixed with spices and clove add to the thick, viscous, beautiful texture and mouthfeel. A memorable bottle.
