Wine Description

(1999 Vintage) Handsome, medium-dark purple-red color. Smoke, a fresh garrigue note and a suggestion of mint underscore inviting, pretty aromas of dried cherry and plums. Very polished in the mouth, with a medium-bodied structure. Focused flavors mirror the nose, showing a silky texture and medium body, good length, and a touch of balancing "nervosity." Finishes with pleasing, ripe tannins and a persistent aftertaste of pretty red fruits (a strong impulse to come back for more.)
