Nose: Olive Tapenade with toasted caramel and creme brulee underneath. Special and amazing.
Palate: featherbed softness that caresses the palate rather than accosts it or simply sits on it. Supple.
Finish: cherry and charcoal hints.
Overall: This is a classic old world style wine from Bordeaux. At 10 years old it is amazing right now and still has enough youth to age for years to come.
A complex and sophisticated wine that tempts and delights and is, quite simply amazing. This is another wine that PB and NW and I had the opportunity to review together. At $99 it is spendy and should be served as a very special treat to people who will appreciate the sophistication and a story.
