(From 2002 Vintage) A very intense nose with smoky, toasted notes of tobacco and black pepper. Intense floral aromas reveal themselves on the second nose. The attack is full and very powerful, leading into a highly structured mid-palate. The finish is long and deeply tannic, with final aromas of cherry and leather.
