Deep, dark and concentrated. Oozing with cassis and blood plum fruits and tinged with some smoked meats. For its size the wine has good proportion and balance and the abundant tannins are sweet and spherical. Pretty darn tasty now but decades away from its eventual apogee.
This a wine which caresses from start to finish. Smoky, dark fruited, gamey nose. Almost lush on palate but a spine of tannins holds it back from becoming flaccid. Amazing richness for a village wine, it is all that one seeks at this level. This bottle is drinking like a charm. I'd score this a 98 for its class/value level
The color is a pretty purple red. The perfume of this wine is dramatic and wonderful - sophisticated high red fruits and gentle whiffs of pepper. Velvet red cherry jelly flows across the palate into a very long finish.
Light purple with the nose filled with flowers and very mellow with hints of vanilla. the more time passes the better the smell gets. very light on the palate, very mellow cherries, earth, medium acidity & tannins. very nice finish..an enjoyable wine
