Served decanted, this is highly aromatic, offering nicely perfumed bramble, cran-cherry, floral, and sweet baking spice aromas. It's full-bodied with dusty, refined tannins and lovely aroma replays. It has juicy acids, very good tannic structure for ageing, and excellent length on the finish. An elegant wine from a highly prized vintage. Bordeaux blend. Will be better in a few years. Tasted Oct/2016.
