Tasted On 03/04/2010
Drunk over two days. Straight from the bottle: what an aroma - a veritable fruit bomb, very intense, concentrated and deep fruit - red berries, sweet cherries, "cocktail berries", flowers, a hint of tobacco and wood - elegant and fresh. Fades of a bit after some time in the glass. Palate: Fresh, slim cherry fruit, really tough tannins that covers some of the fruit, but after swallowing the fruit re-emerges and lasts for a long time.
After an hour or so in the decanter, the wine was put back in the bottle, corked and put in the fridge.
Day two: has changed a lot. The same kind of fruit, stronger again now, but with better "resolution" - roses, rose berries and cherries that seem lighter than last night. Still more emphasis on freshness and elegance. Lovely mouth feel, cherries, some spice, tannins have been rounded off a bit and are not so dominating. Fresh. A long, fruity finish that is just lovely. Not very full bodied, but juicy, elegant and aromatic.
