(From 2002 Vintage) A strong effort for the vintage, this deep ruby/purple-tinged 2002 exhibits scents of pain grille intermixed with raspberries, black cherries, and hints of licorice as well as spice box. With medium to full body, surprising density, high glycerin, sweet tannin, and a heady, perfumed, generous personality.
Bright cherry red colour with reddish edge. Medium-high robe. In the nose, it shows a great intensity. Aromas of red fruit and touches of black fruit, mineral notes, fine toasted hints of its ageing, floral aromas and soft spiced notes. In the mouth, this wine is structured and has a great acidity. Very intense and tannic. Very long finish, aftertaste of ripe fruit and very smoked at retro-olfaction.
