Supple yet full-bodied, a typically fine Saint Julien that needs 8-10 years to reveal its rich and fruity, elegant flavors of cassis, vanilla and ripe blackberries.
Deep ruby to garnet. Dark sweet aromatic black cherry with leather and toast and dried red fruit. Chewy, rich and dense but perhaps a little bit thin. A subtle and simple finish. Well balanced but didn't open up as well as hoped and possibly beginning to deteriorate.
