Color deep red thin to non existence purple edges. Nose is dark cherry, pepper, cinders. Taste is black cherry graphite.
Bouquet is classic Bordeaux but a little light. But interesting it does not need a swirl to cast off some bouquet. A little thin upon the first taste but no distracting acidity which you would suspect with the bouquet.
The wine is a little thin but also has some classic Bordeaux tendencies. Deep garnet with a bright rim.. A beautiful nose, very intense with vanilla flavors and delicate toasty overtones with a little cherry sneaking in.
On the palate, it's full-bodied, wonderfully structured, and velvety. Good tannic balance.
