Full bodied and juicy cassis with still enough tannin. The wine is mature now and offering a good bite. It is a pity that behind the load of young tannin from the past is not the complexity I hoped it would have. Nevertheless; still a very pleasant and good wine. Can easily age a few more years.
The wine is still dark purple. The bouquet is pure and with firm dark cassis, but promises a wine which is still locked. And that is correct; the wine is still harsh and much too young. There is a lot of tannin that needs to melt, but the taste is broad and the finish is quite long, so it will probably be ok on the long term. So give it time; another 5 – 8 years at least.
