This was a difficult wine to judge. With airing it actually had some very nice, complex aromatics, with spicy raspberry fruit, mint, spice, and licorice. But very unyielding in the mouth, and at this point displaying a lot more dry, dusty tannin and acid than fruit intensity. I have no idea how this wine may age -- maybe it's long-lived and just in a closed period. But it's more of an intellectual than a sensuous wine at this point. - HK 2005-01-15
