Tight and tough, big and burly. Nicely aromatic - deep, meaty, floral, perfumed. Chiseled and dusty on the palate - big time cedar, smoke, under-ripe cherry, black licorice, violet. Chewy tannins, this is young, dense, unyielding. High acid knocks it a bit out of balance, and heightens the perception of a green, sour, barrel undertone. This needs time. Old school terroir wine. Excellent value at €17

This particular bottle did not show well, with a medicinal overtone to the meager fruit character and overwhelmed by a drying earthiness. Featured a mean green streak as well, and faded into raw splintery oak as the night wore on. Hard to derive pleasure from something like this. Pretty disappointing as recent vintages have shown a lot of promise.

Black currants in the noise, forest floor, poopy, mushrooms. A bit tired at this point, medium acidity and tannins. Smooth and medium finish. Past it’s prime but tasty.
