PnP. Firm, dark, ample almost syrah-like fruit that has a little brambly spice. Still with tannins and etoh. Opened midweek with pasta, and it performed okay in this context. Not recommended for lighter fair.
Opened with trepidation, but this did quite well. PnP. Aromas of brambly cherries, asian and baking spices which were all quite forward and gave a sense of richness. On palate it had medium plus intensity fruit and spice that filled the mouth, but it was a little disjointed with heat protruding and lacking acid/mineral of interest. The fruit character and spice make this appealing and give it a chance at developing some further interest with age.
The nose is definitely the high point for this wine; beatiful blend of dark berries and cola; finish is heavy/hot and no where near as pleasing; agreed that there is still life in this wine, but not one of my favorite Siduri '03 efforts
