    September 12, 2020 - Decanted for a couple of hours.
    Can't place the scent, but I like it.
    I settled into this with duck breast, wild rice and vegetables; it went well with the food but, as ever, I enjoyed it even more after the food.
    Creamy, silky texture. Length. Something of an old wallet about it. Just the right grip of tannin. Brilliantly balanced.

    September 5, 2020 - Early maturity. Probably has a decent amount of merlot as I didn’t get any austerity from the tannins—and most were rather integrated. Maturing fruit, leather, elegant nose. Just lovely. Drink or over the next 10yrs.

    August 4, 2020 - Ready to drink, classically styled, with a focus on its bright red fruits, earthy, cedar and tobacco leaf nature, the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and lively with bite to the red fruits in the finish.

    July 25, 2020 - Long day decant (it needed it)
    Deep ox-blood in color, full bodied.
    Dark stewed fruit, leather, all spice
    Unctuous. Thick. Sweet prunes, light oak. Longish finish.
    Drinking perfectly right now. Drink or hold for up to 5 years.

    May 1, 2020 - Early May 2020: decanted for approx. 1 h; dark rubin red color; complex bouquet of cassis aroma mingled with licorice, cherries, violets and bread flavors; first a bit harsh and uneven on the palate; after another hour fully balanced with a sound acidity and gentle tannins.

    In 2014 I rated this wine 85 points (see tasting note) due to the excessive and almost brutal tannic backbone. Now things have very much improved and the Ferriere 2005 provided an excellent tasting experience. Suggest to decant even for 1-2 h longer as I did to have a balanced impression right from the start.
