ITEM 8209229 - Removed from a temperature and humidity controlled wine cellar
Super-spicy blackberries and black cherries make up the aromatic profile...dense, pure personality is medium to full-bodied, chewy-textured, crammed with dark cherries, and immensely concentrated.
Dry, almost austere at this stage, this wine is only just beginning to show its dense tannins and power. Under that firm, solid exterior, the rich black perfumed fruits are just waiting to burst out when it has had a few years in bottle.
...accents of black cherry, plum and cassis. It's firm, but there's a sweetness and intensity that balances the tannins.
Rich and very concentrated...Finishes with sweet, broad tannins and excellent length.
Lively, relatively tense for a 2003 red burgundy, almost as though it has been acidified...Pretty sulky. Some core of bitter cherry fruit.
