Opaque ruby red in color with arresting aromas of wild berries, juniper, tobacco, and coffee. On the palate the wine is rich, elegant, and full-bodied.

Robert Parker(1999 Vintage) ". . . aged in both small barrels and the bigger foudres. A saturated dense purple color is accompanied by sumptuous aromas of graphite, blackberries, black currants, plums, and tar. A seamless entry on the palate is followed by a sweet, concentrated fruit. This terrific, sexy, full throttle red possesses both power and elegance. Drink it over the next 10-12 years "
