Brief Wine Note – 2002 Drinkward Peschon “Entre Deux Meres”

15 May

Popped and poured.  Is the date on the label correct?  This wine looks, smells, and tastes like it could be a current release. Not the grapeiness that you get on truly new wines, but just so intense as to belie its true age.  Huge aromatics… Black fruit, blueberry, cola, incense, and a hint of licorice.  Intense flavors on the palate – blackberry, dark cherry, cassis, and the subtlest hint of oak. 

Great purity, silky mouthfeel, perfect balance, long finish….it doesn’t get much better than this for me.  Certainly in its prime, and should remain here for several years.
