(15% alcohol): Bright, deep red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of cassis, black cherry, graphite, licorice, menthol and bitter chocolate. Suave, sweet and concentrated if a bit youthfully aggressive and medicinal in the early going. But this has excellent energy and intensity, and classic Oakville character. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely rising perfume.

Almost always a bargin for the relative quality vintage after vintage.
