(2004 Vintage) Good intensity and persistence on the nose, with hints of withered flowers. Well-balanced taste, with good acidity. Excellent after 4 to 10 years whatever the vintage, and up to 15/20 years in outstanding vintages. "Aromas of blackberry, meat and hints of flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with soft, silky tannins and a medium finish. Has outstanding concentration. Best after 2010."-Wine Spectator
Wine Spectator(1998 Vintage) "Multifaceted aromas and flavors of berries, plums, mushrooms and cedar. Full-bodied, with solid, chewy tannins and a medium finish. Needs time to open. 2,800 cases made."
