poop corc - expectations were not overly enthusiastic.

Surprisingly deep in colour, pichdark with a slight rim. The nose shows residual fruit, chocolate and some herbs in the background. Good acidity on the palate, herbs, black cherries, some cassis on the palate. Good lenght in the aftertaste.

After some two hours in the decanter it begins to fall apart and become unstructured. Some green tannin and too much acidity. Hands off or drink rapidly after opening slightly chilled.
