|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
A tightly wound style, lean yet dense, with dusty tannins and cherry, currant and licorice flavors. Vibrant and long, veering toward the astringent side in terms of balance. Needs time to absorb the oak.?
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
Moderate wood frames the notably ripe yet fresh array of red currant, earth and once again, plenty of sauvage characters that can also be found on the rich and relatively full-bodied flavors that possess a succulent, even opulent mouth feel. The finish though is slightly sweet and this aspect is accentuated by the wood treatment. While there is nothing technically amiss, I can't say this especially appeals to me though in fairness, the sweetness may very well dissipate with enough bottle age.
