Nez de fraise compotée, de kirsch. Bouche ronde et épicée, le vin est puissant, un peu cuit, chaleureux, pas agressant, voire agréable, mais tout de même simple. Les invités ont semblé apprécier beaucoup plus que moi....86 pts
Leather and black cherry on the nose. Full bodied with waves of luscious ripe fruit. Definitely leaning towards a modern style, but just enough rusticness to keep this real. Still going strong for a 2003.
A ripe nose of blackberry, fig, herbs and licorice lead way to much of the same on the palate along with a tobacco, vanilla and a roasted meat quality flavor profile. While good it left me wanting more.
Bright garnet. Medium nose of boysenberries and blackberries, properly ripe palate of dark berries and some plum, but a little hollow. The finish is medium-long and pleasing. This wine has reasonable tannic grip for a CdP, no obvious alcohol despite the 14.5% ABV.
