Deep medium ruby. Blackberry, blueberry and licorice on the nose, lifted by a violet topnote. At once hefty and penetrating, with lovely depth and breadth to the black fruit flavors. A bit youthfully medicinal today and not yet particularly complex but shows the sweetness of the vintage in spades. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and excellent length.

Inky dark core. Spicy and meaty on the nose. Very smooth tannins and full of lovely pure fruit. Tannins very well handled and (deceptively?) rounded. Just fresh enough. (JH)

Deep and rich color with aromas of brick dust, damp earth and faint lilies. Very closed - requires several hours to air. Tannins hiding the fruit, dark berry, and hints of lead pencil. Thick but not unctuous with a long finish on the tongue. Very enjoyable, and exemplifies the globalization of wine, which is becoming very 'new worldly.' But this is not homogeneous in any way. I believe several more years will truly benefit this wine.
