This is dark and brooding, with blackberry, plum, tar and treacle notes. Very fresh, with a healthy dose of earth, mineral and balsamic accents. More masculine, monolithic and square than the 1999. Drink now through 2024. (Web-2011)
Medium red. Reticent but sweet aroma of currants, smoke and flowers, plus a whiff of varnish. More powerful than the '97; more penetrating and dense but not as pliant, with a stronger backbone of acidity. Seems even higher in extract and thus may be better balanced for extended aging. The strong but even tannins coat more of the mouth.
