This vintage will prove to be historic. Appearance exhibits a deep rich ruby hue. Aromas are layered with black berry and flavors of cherry, cassis and plum. There is a core minerality with violet tones. The oak is well integrated and has nice toast aroma with hints of vanilla, spice and dried wood. On the palate, the wine is lush and firm but also has long mature lush tannins and supple texture. This wine can be enjoyed now and will age for 15 years. It is very elegant.
