The Character

Overall Excellent Balance
Aromas The aromatics include currants, black plums, bay leaf and allspice.
Mouthfeel Full Bodied & Polished
Tasting Notes The deep black and red fruit flavors of currant and cherry are accompanied by side notes of white pepper with bay leaf from the nose.

The Story

As with Bordeaux, it is enjoyable now, but patient owners will benefit from the additional complexities that develop in the bottle over the next several years.
