    Appearance: Very dark mahogany, thick and very slow legs and very calm in the glass after panning.

    Nose: very heavy in the nose. Slightly nutty with simultaneous sweetness. Goes a little towards jam. Raisins and ripe, red fruits. Maybe some cherry or plum.
    With some time and water take over first herbs, a light fruit with some chocolate but remains.

    Palate: pretty strong start and poof is the young. Nevertheless, quite a lot of wood and bitterness in the first sip. Prickelt quite a long time after the first sip, but not very pleasant.
    The second sip of water has a more leisurely start with fruity sweetness, however, the metallic of the youth comes back and also the bitter pimples.

    Finish: Medium length, very bitter and slightly dry.

    Conclusion: good, but not more. The nose is really good to very good, but expresses the taste (especially the youth) the overall but clearly .... A great pity, especially if you have the soloist bottlings in mind (I know, is also a huge price difference)
