Community Tasting Notes (10) Avg Score: 90.6 points

  • Cork was absolutely perfectly extracted, with just light color at the wine end. Still, showed slightly advanced color and aromas. Some of these aromas dissipated with air time, but it always remained a little funky. Palate entry showed some more tart fruit, but still plenty of leafs and earthy floor notes. Quite tannic as its left on the palate, and this carries heavily into the finish. Very big wine still, tannicly speaking, but again it's showing more advanced notes on the finish, including old wet leafs, plums, dark fruit. But boy is it ever still tannic... going on an hour in the glass it did mellow a bit, but always remained quite grippy. Nice wine, but I worry about its advanced character. Hope to pop another bottle soon and decant it for a while first to get a better feel for where this is headed.

  • Better than the previous bottle - probably because we decanted for a couple of hours and then poured it through an aerator. Smooth and silky. Dark cherries, plum and leather notes. One left.

  • Garnet to brown in colour. Good legs. Smooth and creamy start. Got better as it aired. Perfect with beef tenderloin. I have 2 left in my cellar. Should drink in the next 6 months.

  • The ripe deep colour, with some 'Italian' brown and the round and deep bouquet promised a lot and that went on in the creamy start of the midtaste but than age came through. At the end the wine missed the body and the balance the front showed; still a lovely wine, but drink soon.

  • Earth tones, let breath for an hour or more to really open up.
    Use of a decanter is recommended. Good amount of sediment.
