Kept this one in my cellar until now (Oct. 2011), and it's showing beautifully. Great flavour intensity, complexity and balance. It starts out with lots of herbal (Bay Leaf), and game/meat juice notes and flavours and even a slight medicinal note (but in a good way), with red fruits in the background but as it opens up, the red fruits come to the fore (especially cherry). It was delicious throughout the 2 hours that it was open and really enjoyable. If you've got any, don't hesitate to drink some now.

Colour is evolving nicely to a maturing, just-beginning-to-brown red. The nose has a touch of heat with aromas of cherries, cranberry, wood and herbs. Medium body but tons of mouth watering flavours: Sour cherries, licorice & herbs (Jagermeister?) some alcoholic heat as predicted by the nose. Quite warming and heady. Very fine, sweet, soft, tannins. Medium-long finish. This is no Ch. de B. but a good drink and a nice old/new world style balance.
