Double decanted from a 375 ml bottle.
Color is an amazing deep garnet. The nose is a bit subdued at first then shows a understated beautiful sweetness. Some crème de casis is showing through. The palate shows the super elegant breeding that the Melka/Lail team have promised. There is a refined complexity that I truly enjoy. Great deep red fruit with underlying multi layered tannins that promise a nice future. This has an amazing purity to it. Fantasic low-key acid level that adds to the package. Great lond 20 second finish. WOW
100% Cabernet,. This IS what I signed on for. (as opposed to my last weeks note on the '03 Pride). This reminds me of the Forman from the same vintage (also tasted last week).
