Medium plus blood red colored wine with a few distinct slightly colored legs. An immediately appealing nose of spearmint, cassis, smoke, sandalwood, cedar, and minerals. Already enjoyable now, the wine shows excellent balance to go along with its suave and persistent flavors. Tastes like a wine that hails from Chateau Palmer ? the highest praise for a second wine in my opinion.
