(From 1999 Vintage) Intense ruby color, with an elegant nose and fruity, floral aromas. On the palate, the structure is complex and dense, melting away harmoniously to a good, long finish. When they are older, the wines take on a terracotta tint and the nose becomes increasingly complex, with the appearance of plummy, then undergrowth aromas. The flavors are smooth, warm and perfectly harmonious, ending with silky tannins.
(From 2005 Vintage) A beautiful nose of new saddle leather, spice box, black currants, & a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco, it offers admirable richness
