not a rebuy at $119, this was very nice, on night one it was dark, rustic, with drying tannins, on night two it had mellowed a bit and was better with hints of red fruit blending in with the darker base, good acid, just a hint of sweetness to balance what i would say is an austere core, less drying but still drying... good but not great and only good on nights 2 and 3... if i had one more i would wait another five years but the outcome would be uncertain
A whole lot more open and approachable than the 1993 tasted alongside. Sour cherry nose with tangerine, florality, dried herbs and barnyardy animality. Medium to fullbodied palate with refreshing acidity and nice grip of tannin. Dry style, but with good concentration of fruit. A bit furry and funky - but only on a complementary level. Coffee notes and minerality towards the finish. Quite approachable and definitely good.
