(From 2012 Vintage) Very ripe and very primal, still delivering a large core of velvety-textured raspberry, fig and boysenberry fruit that is liberally laced with dark toast, pastis and roasted vanilla. Should settle in nicely with modest cellaring, as the structures dense, but polished and integrated.
Great tasting, especially with steak. Tastes good by itself as well. Has kick to it but with very lively and fruity taste.
Very smooth, not spicy. Very little fruit, pleasant
quite good for the price
