2003 Mendiz LBV

Post by Rubby » 22:40 Sat 10 Jan 2009

Bottled by Sogevinus - Fine Wines, S.A.

Bottled in 2008. Filtered.

Colour dark purple-red.
A nose of mainly raspberry, cherries and some dark chocolate. A lot of alcohol in the mouth. On the palette again a lot of raspberry, cherries, dark chocolate and some peach. A reasonable lengthy aftertaste.
Surprisingly high amount of tannins.

A not unpleasant but rather dull LBV. Too much alcohol and tannins.
