Saturated ruby to the rim.  Outstanding floral lift to the aromas of cassis, licorice, menthol and pungent minerality.  Very pure, primary and high-pitched, but already boasts an extraordinarily fine-grained texture, reflecting both the vintage and the site.  Most impressive today on the palate-saturating finish, which features wonderfully silky tannins and great mounting persistence.
