Wine was very good. It surprised me as I had it in my cellar for a number of years. The wine was beautifully balanced with nice fruit. It was medium bodied, not heavy. We drank with steaks. I have had this wine before and had several vintages but this bottle was much better than I have remembered. Will check out more recent vintages.
Good ruby color throughout. The nose is clean, decently balanced, and maturing nicely. Some musty earthiness with black raspberry comes through. In tasting the palate is dry, with medium acidity, some alcohol, with dark plum, licorice and a bit of woodiness, but just a bit. The alcohol has subdued since the 2011 reviewer, and comes across much more balanced and hinting of being french in character, very pleasant to drink.
