Ruby color. Very floral on the nose. 8th vintage of this wine I have had. Always a well rounded wine and that appears to be continuing after the passing of Marcel. Notes of cherry, charcoal and spices. Velvety mouthfeel. 91 points.
Opened by Mark at dinner at Salt of the Earth in Fennville, MI. Decanted about 30 minutes before we drank it. Deep Crimson color. Notes of cedar, currants and tobacco. Pronounced but integrated tannins. Round and lush finish. Medium to full bodied. No rush to drink but I thought it was in a sweet spot for my tastes. 94 points
