(From 2005 Vintage) Good ruby-red. Nose offers hints of very ripe black fruits as well as a slightly weedy quality. Supple on entry, then a bit medicinal in the middle, with black fruit and herbal flavors and a faint gamey quality. Seems heavily extracted rather than truly fleshy. Finishes with broad, dusty, slightly dry tannins.
