Very dense core here, dark purple. High maturity on the nose; it’s pure, mostly dominated by fruit, no evident oak. Rather dark plum, cassis, some fine spices as well, a hint of tobacco. Very good grip on the palate. I think it’s a very fine wine, rather modern style with a good emphasis on that ripe fruit. We have a lot of extract, we have a great deal of density here, and a very long and lingering finish. Ripe style so tannins are well-integrated, but still very present. Very juicy dark fruit with notes of cassis, some spicy notes; almost some exotic notes of mint. Very powerful and long finish, very good grip. A wine which I think is offering both opulence and elegance, a wine I would be happy to drink today but it’s certainly a wine with a potential for 10 to 15 more years with this deal of density and concentration. Very fine.
