KSC02, Mimik and Longboarder,

Thanks a lot for posting these notes. Seems like a very impressive wine. I've been in some doubt over the past two weeks on this wine. I've seen some nice offers, but still on the high side of my 'must buy' range. And I haven't found an opportunity to taste it myself.

Has anyone of you tasted the '04? I have some of that vintage in my cellar (in the far back cornerBig Grin). I liked this one because its a 'monster' of gripping tannins and black fruit with lots of refinement underneath. The 'berries' and 'menthol' make me doubt about the '06.
This is of course highly personal.
A comparison with the '04 would be of great help to me.
