Big and fleshy, full of ripe black fruits, spice and sweet oak. Somewhat burly in structure, with intensity and length, it delivers a mouthful of pleasure. Best from 2002 through 2008.
Black cherry, currant, mineral, mocha and smoky oak on the nose. Thick, deep and layered, with a gentle, silky texture. Finishes with sweet but substantial tannins and notes of caramel and smoke. Mellow and satisfying, but quite oaky.
