It boasts a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to an expressive bouquet of cassis minerals and smoke. This multi-textured round wine exhibits sweet well-integrated tannin a great mid-palate and finish as well as spectacular purity and palate presence. Consume it now and over the next 15-20 years...

Good medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, redcurrant, cocoa powder and tobacco, with a vegetal trace in the background. Focused and precise in the mouth, with lovely texture and sweetness. Notes of blueberry and tobacco... Good medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, redcurrant, cocoa powder and tobacco, with a vegetal trace in the background. Focused and precise in the mouth, with lovely texture and sweetness. Notes of blueberry and tobacco. Finishes juicy and long. With extended aeration, this impeccably made wine showed richer aromas of black raspberry and mocha, and a fatter texture, with strong but harmonious acidity enabling the wine to maintain its shape. Certainly one of the half-dozen strongest cabernet-based wines from this difficult vintage.
