WTN: Alejandro Fernandez Pesquera Gran Reserva Janus 2003

by Jay Labrador » Sun Dec 13, 2020 8:34 am

Lockdown Wine #75. Very dark and opaque, with just a tinge of brick. Quite a complex nose. All ripe black fruit at first, giving way to earth and a bit of barnyard, and then later savory, peppery spice. The rather fierce tannins that were very prominent in this wine's youth have melted away. There's still a bit of it going on, but the wine is certainly very approachable, and nothing that a bit of food can't fix. Rich, with a lot of ripe, sweet black fruit. Grilled meat, dried herbs, coffee beans as well. Very nicely put together. The 14% alcohol doesn't show at all. The earthiness is also apparent on the palate. Maybe just approaching peak. Good length. Savory, meaty finish.Excellent.

Interesting. I have never had an older Janus.

We had a '94 in 2013. It was REALLY impressive.
