Tasting Notes:
tasted: July 15, 2006 , Xavier Declercq
4 stars "Color: deep; Aromas: woody; Finish: persistent; "
tasted: October 2, 2009 , from a member
3.5 stars "Finish: persistent; Nose is somewhat closed - dark cherries, barique, some soil. Is somewhat closed and doormant on the palate - especially in the front. Wild cherries, raspberries, and finishes with dry tannins on the long finish. It's okay - not great. Not sure if it needs more time or should have been decanted. A little disappointed. Starting to open - with some minerality on the nose and finish"
