Medium light body. The nose is a bit astringent, which may smooth out with time, but there are nice notes of strawberry, and cranberry. Not fruit forward. Tart cherry, a touch of vanilla and raspberry flavors. Maybe needs a few more years.
No way to decern if this will be a great wine with age but its a tasty and balanced representation of Burgundy and the 09 vintage right now. I like the lighter weight, freshness, rsapberry and spice flavors and particularly the length on the finish. A very nice btl of wine right now for $28. Since I'm unsure this acheives greatness down the road I doubt I'll cellar any but a nice ride, right now for under $30. You could do much worse than owning some of this though.
13.0% - Clear, light ruby / clean, med intensity - raspberry, black tea, dry leaves, citrus - orange peel/ dry, med acidity (black tea like), med- body, low silky tannin, med- intensity, med length. Had it on two days - better on the second day as the orange peel settled down a bit and some gamey notes brought some more depth.
