Quite powerful aromas of cassis, white pepper, rose petal and fresh herbs show some noticeable alcohol along with a slight hint of charcoal. The ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruit on the front is fairly quickly balanced with a slightly green edge which gives way to more chalky notes and some bitter chocolate characteristics. There is a nice balance of ripe yet pure and focused fruit that is very cleansing, but also exhibits some heft due to the chalky texture. Should improve over the next 3 or 4 years.
Med red. Cherry and strawberry fruit plus a refreshing dash of greenness. Sweet fruit, clean, light and lively on the palate, with some wood-derived texture. Finishes with some vanilla in addition to the fruit. Very nice. Very burgundian.

Agree with others that the wine was thin. I was hoping for more, but as time passed in the decanter there really wasn't much improvement in my opinion. A little cherry on the palate and some heat on the finish.
