In the nose overextracted, complex, a bit floral, herbs and lot’s of dark fruits like cherries, cassis, blackberries, blueberries, some vanilla. On the palate very fruity nontheless elegant, complex, fine. Finish long, medium bodied. To our taste overextracted, too masculine and by far too expensive.
Good full ruby. Roasted black raspberry, blackberry, spicecake, licorice, minerals and nutty oak on the nose. Denser than the 2005 and a step up in intensity but nicely light on its feet. There’s lovely sweetness to the black fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes with big but sweet tannins and a lingering minerality.
