Very dark color. Closed nose at the start, after some air red fruit, licorice and underbrush. On the palate dominating tannines, lack of fruit. Became softer after a while (4 hours), but the fruit never showed up as I expected. Finish medium but to much tannines. This wine has the caracteristics of the 2002 vintage.
Typical softness of Bordeaux merlot. Spicy French oak and hints of blue berry and chocolate on the nose. A bit high in acidity as expected for a Bordeaux. Great to have with food. It showed spectacularly at Fogo de Chao (Brazilian Churrascaria). Drink now-2010.
