Tasted January 2005, TN by LadyR:

[quote]With our crappy light, there was not much difference in colour between the two.
Less intense nose, but in same style, lots of cooked vegetables. The nose shows older than the Panascal. The taste is a complete different story: thick bodied but fresh in appearance, lovely concentration of black and red cherries, lemon blossom, some bayleaves and milk chocolate. Good balance and smooth (but noticable) tannins. Some secondary flavours, but still relatively young in character. More complex and enjoyable than the Panascal.
The long finish contains loads of cassis fruit and chocolate. 91 points[/quote}
