    Full-bodied and tannic, perhaps a bit young. Very nice nose - plums, leather, some spice, oak. Incredible silky texture: smooth, weighty, and velvety - almost unctuous.

    (2004 Vintage) Medium red. Spicy, focused red berry aroma. Brisk strawberry and raspberry flavors are complicated by tangy mineral and pepper notes. Finishes bright and racy, with a zesty redcurrant note and a suggestion of lavender.
