(1996 Vintage) Ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, roasted plum, animal fur and graphite. Velvety in texture but with a powerful underlying structure. Very strong on the back end, which features substantial tongue-dusting tannins and subtle finishing flavor.
DecanterRating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Distinct browning; slightly oxidised nose, coffee; distinct oxidation on palate, faded and could never have been that good; medium length.
