An unfortunate case of volatility, in the realm of household cleaners. Not typical for such an all-star.

2006, gamey nose, bacon fat, dried cherries and dried herbs. A bit gritty finish.

Classic Cheval. Chocolate covered red fruit, forest floor, rich mushroom, mocha, Sumatra coffee. Tannin is a bit angry and angular.

Wood smoke. Lean and keen. Woodland fruits. Quite like in the first blush of maturity.
