Bright ruby-red. Complex but restrained aromas of spiced plum, strawberry, mocha, iron, tobacco and sexy oak. Wonderfully rich, layered and concentrated, with a chewy, high-extract quality to its powerful cassis, blueberry, camphor and licorice flavors. Compellingly chewy but without any easy sweetness. Wonderfully intense but not at all overextracted, conveying an impression of medicinal reserve that suggests this wine will be very long-lived. The extremely long, elegant finish boasts noble tannins and lovely energy and lift. A great vintage for this wine, but hands off for at least six or seven years.
