(From 2002 Vintage) Intense concentrated fruit with black currents, layers of chocolate, hints of licorice, anise, earth and leather, with a long, complex, and lingering aftertaste. Powerful nose and rich everlasting core of red and black fruits with well-incorporated tannins— though not overpowering—lead to an elegant and graceful gem.
(From 2008 Vintage) Good full red. Enticing, complex nose combines aromas of cherry, raspberry, violet, minerals, coffee and spices. Broad, lush and smooth, with pretty floral lift to the red fruit and spice flavors. Nicely delineated in the middle palate and long on the back end, where the ripe tannins coat the teeth.
