1999 Kopke

Post by AHB » 12:03 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Brick red in colour with no scarlet in the tone; rather turbid. Boiled cabbage on the nose. A fresh bottle was a brighter brick red but still slightly smelly on the nose with lots of cabbage. Baked fruit and lots of tannin on the palate; really not balanced but will likely reward a few years of further patience. NR. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
