The wine exhibits aromas of new saddle leather damp earth blackberries incense cassis and toast. An intriguing tapenade note emerges with airing. It is full-bodied with sweet tannin low acidity and impressive concentration. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 12-13 years.</P>

Much better than from barrel. Best after 2004... Lots of ripe berry almost raisiny aromas with hints of mocha and spices.
