...seductive Margaux with an intense nose of black fruit and red plums. Some herb and wood notes, too. It’s full-bodied with pretty, pure-berry flavors with some crushed stones and cement...texture is silky and fine-grained and the tannins melt into the wine. Precise, flavorful finish with length.

...very attractive bouquet of detailed scents of red currant, wild strawberry, wilted rose petals and crushed stone...palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins matched with a fine bead of acidity.
