(2005 Vintage) Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by lovely aromas of black currants, cherries, smoke, meats, and minerals. Superb purity, full body, good acidity, and moderate tannin.
Decanter(2001 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Quite modern, but in a restrained fashion. Deep, bright colour. Ripe, dark fruit with a twist of spicy oak. The palate is full, fleshy and concentrated but not over-extracted, the finish fresh and zesty. Drink 2006-12. (JL)
