(2005 Vintage) A wine with very attractive aromas of ripe blackberry, fresh forest mushroom and raspberry. Full-bodied, with amazing fruit concentration and powerful tannins. The power and richness of this wine are superb. A fantastic effort for the vintage.

    Good full red. Sexy aromas of plum, raspberry, spices, dried flowers and minerals; this bottling always strikes me as Burgundian. Suave, broad and classically dry, with a fine-grained texture and lovely aromatic lift to the red berry, spice and floral flavors. This very juicy wine finishes with substantial dusty tannins and captivating mineral firmness. All of these wines are done in barriques
