Opaque purple-ruby. Perfumed nose offers blackberry, woodsmoke, truffle and violet scents, along with a whiff of cocoa. Less sweet and deep than it was at the Primeurs but still a bit youthfully ungiving, offering savory blackberry and licorice flavors supported by an extremely firm, drying tannic spine. Almost painful today. This seems overextracted to me, but perhaps all it needs is time.
