(From 1998 Vintage) The color of this wine is an intense and brilliant ruby red. It has floral and intense fruity aromas that are fine and elegant with fresh fruit such as grape and cherry and a hint of vanilla. The wine has a fresh and aromatic attack. It has good acidity against soft lively tannins. Full-bodied and smooth, it has very fruity taste of cherry and blackberry with a slight vanilla note at the end. The finish is fresh, well balanced and persistent.
