Good dark ruby-red. Wild aromas of black cherry, incense and sexy oak. Smooth, plush and rich, with rather full-bodied flavors of plum, tobacco, flowers, minerals and herbs. The sweet finish features a fine dusting of tannins that will not get in the way of enjoying this wine soon.
Dark ruby. Fragrant floral aromas of red cherry and raspberry jam complicated by balsamic vinegar and vanillin oak. Bright and fresh on entry, with flavors of cassis and cocoa lifted by violet, then impressive and long on the finish, with mounting tannins. A very rich, thick wine from Haut-Bergey that will need time in the cellar to shed its oaky veneer.
