Dark purple. Still primary and quite youthful aromatically, showing little sign of its six years of bottle age. Infused with precise aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, mocha, clove, and cedar. Rich, dense, yet now beautifully composed. Packed with crushed black- and red-fruit preserves. All of the opulence of the vintage buttressed by fine, dusty tannins. Arguing, as Wine Spectator did, for another 5-7 years of cellar slumber.
