(09-2009) Dark red color, medium intensity. Moderately aromatic nose, showing an early bouquet of aging. Note of cedar, but also alcohol and metal. These last two smells are more evident with agitation. Tender, quite lively and yet caressing on the palate where nuances of fruit and creamy sensations mingle. Finely tannic, but above all aromatic, and it is this quality of aromas that gives this wine its interest.

(04-2001) A dense rubypurple color is accompanied by an attractive bouquet of lead pencil, graphite, black currants, raspberries, and spice. Medium-bodied, with beautifully knit flavors revealing excellent definition, this subtle, restrained yet persuasive 1998 displays a distinctive style.

(2009) Some earthy, spicy, and lightly raisiny aromas follow through to a medium body, with a good core of fruit and a silky finish. Enjoy.
