In the bouquet some strawberries, beautiful garrigue, leather, licorice, earth and autumn impressions. On the palate red berries, a lot of herbs and spices, good acidity and soft tannin with still some bite. Some bitterness in the finish. Good length. A little less full bodied compared to the 1996. Completely ready now, but if you own a well stored bottle, it can last a few more years as well. 92 - 93
