The cherry, raspberry, earth, spice and mineral flavors are offset by smoky oak and solid tannins in this well-defined red. Vibrant and long, offering oak spice and mineral on the finish.
A very deeply pitched nose that displays fresh red and dark berry fruit and floral aromas along with notes of the sauvage that continue over to the serious and very solidly structured big-bodied flavors.
Fat and sweet but a bit monolithic today compared to the Latricieres, without quite the same impression of inner-palate energy of delineation. Best today on the very long, thick, unflagging finish.
