Deep medium ruby. Blackberry, blueberry and licorice on the nose, lifted by a violet topnote. At once hefty and penetrating, with lovely depth and breadth to the black fruit flavors. A bit youthfully medicinal today and not yet particularly complex but shows the sweetness of the vintage in spades. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and excellent length.
Dark ruby-red. The nose begins a bit aromatically compressed, even warm, but opens with air to reveal lovely aromas of ripe red cherry, sweet spices and truffle. Then rich and ripe in the mouth, with slightly chunky flavors of red and black fruits and a hint of tarry tobacco. Finishes creamy and long, but nonetheless left me wishing for a bit more complexity and finesse. Those who prefer their wines big and ripe may score this much higher than I have.
