Aromas of currant bush, berries and sweet tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with medium tannins and a long finish. Lovely texture to this wine. (JS, Web-2007)
Long on woodsy, black coffee and toffee-like complexities from the very first sniff, this solid, richly oaked wine exhibits a foundation of berries and blackcurrant fruit that becomes a little more visible in the mouth than it is in the nose. Slightly supple in feel and fairly smooth in its overall construction, the wine is surprisingly approachable given its age and may prove to be at its best in only three or four years.
Very individual fruit character. Lovely texture, very rich, succulent, and masses of potential. Drink 2013-19.
Fully saturated deep ruby. Enticing, slightly high-toned aromas of red cherry, menthol and spicecake pick up considerable depth with aeration. Turns a little austere in the mouth, showing a cooler, almost medicinal edge and a vegetal streak to the flavors of cherry, spices, coffee and herbs. Finishes peppery, clean and precise, with mounting, youthfully mouth-puckering tannins. Though this is hardly a blockbuster, it is turning out much better than the rainy growing season might have suggested. The 13.4% alcohol surprised me given the growth cycle in 2002, but the wine doesn't taste hot at all. A rather successful, well-done 2002 Bordeaux. (ID)
