Shows complexity, depth and good fruit quality. The oak is very present though, both on the immediate nose and in the tannin structure. A good wine, but I think it needs (much) more time to show its full potential.
Lovely depth and complexity on the nose. Slightly developed nose with medium+ intense aromas of freshly ground black pepper, raw meat, Sour sausages (Onsalakorv), cinnamon, cloves, violets, a touch of barnyard and butter and quite a lot of oak on top.
Vibrant acidity (medium+) with a sour touch of yoghurt (MLF). Round and polished with less tannins than I expected. Medium+ body, medium+ intensity and a long finish. Very well made and I'm incredibly happy to have another bottle of this in the cellar. Will try and leave it for another 3-5 years, but this is delicious right now!
I'm with MARCS on this one, spectacular. Lovely effervescent nose, complex and balanced palate of juicy berries, earthy/animal notes, and smooth/long/clean finish. This is drinking very well now, so no need to wait any longer on these. I've had very good experiences with the 2006 Rhone vintage, both north and south, red and white.
