(75% cabernet sauvignon and 25% petit verdot; 14.5% alcohol): Deep purple-ruby. Knockout nose combines blackcurrant, violet, coffee, menthol, tar and graphite. The palate offers an uncanny combination of sweetness and penetrating power, with brisk acidity framing and lifting the very rich flavors of black fruits, minerals and spices. The very long, soft, supple finish conveys an impression of energy and youthfulness, not to mention the structure for a graceful evolution in bottle. Lay this one down.
