Wow, utplockad av sommeliern efter jag försökt beskriva vad jag uppskattar (och inte uppskattar) i ett rött vin. Serveras dekanterat. Drar åt det rubinröda hållet med lite mognadsfärger i kanten. Fantastisk näsa med torkad fruk (äpplen, aprikos) och våta stenar. Smak av körsbär samt blommor. Mjuka men ändå tydliga tanniner som ger vinet en struktur. Lite inslag av kryddor och trä. Lång eftersmak. Vilket vin
Had just a taste before Ben decided to cork it for a day. But WOW...I'm coming back tomorrow just to see where this ends up, because already it is promising to be MINDBLOWING!!! Let's just say, if I met a man who smelled and tasted like this...I'd have found my penguin.
I left a glass to sit til the end of the night while tasting other things, and by 7 pm (opened between 1 & 2 pm) the nose was full of steeped tea leaves...gorgeous!!!
First night, tight as nails. Some very tart fruit on the nose, only acidity really on the pallete. By the third day this wine was really shinning, though still very very tannic. Had to pop one to see what all the fuss was about, glad I have more for the deep sleep. A very nice bottle of wine at this point, expecting much more down the road.
Tasted at the winery. Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose fo tar, forest floor, black cherries, black berries and a touch of flowers. Flavors of black cherries, black berries. Pretty rich fruit. Bright acidity, firm tannins, medium to full body. Drink now with a decant or preferably continue to hold. 14.0% alcohol.
