I love this blend. A bit shy on the nose with red and black fruit, clove, vanilla and toasty oak. The palate is rich, smooth and well structure. Medium to full body and great length. Ode to Lorraine is very enjoyable now and will only get better over the next 4-5 years. Tasted in January 2011.

ripe and smooth red with menthol. Intense and refined. Not too hot and the tannin is silky. Excellent length.
