Varietal aromas of ripe black cherries, plums and vanilla mingle with flavors of blueberry compote. Soft tannins and subtle acids carry the fruit flavors through to a mediumlength and pleasant finish.
""Appealing for its bright, focused currant, cranberry, red cherry, dusty berry and anise flavors, it firms up, shows concentration and depth, and finishes with a pretty burst of fruit. Drink now through 2008.""Rating: 88 POINTSWine SpectatorAugust 31, 2003
