About this wine
Polished, with vivid, alluring flavors of blueberry, blackberry and vanilla. Tannins are firm and well-integrated, and the finish echoes with floral, minty and smoky notes. Best after 2004.
Bright medium ruby. An essence of berries on the nose; like a liqueur, with an almost medicinal suggestion of sheer concentration. Superripe and incredibly lush; as thick as this is, there's no heaviness thanks to its penetrating spiciness and solid backbone. Wonderfully perfumed in the mouth. Urgent finishing fruit currently hides the lush tannins. A wine of extraordinary length.
