An immense wine, loaded with complex, concentrated flavors, centered around ripe cherry, currant and kirsch, supported by firm, dusty, chewy tannins and finishing with hints of anise, sage and mineral flavors.
"full-bodied, chewy, massive red with hug muscle and depth as well as excruciatingly high levels of tannin...it should last.."
Aromas of cassis, blueberry, licorice, lead pencil and Cuban tobacco. Dense and powerful but rather elegant; the petit verdot contributes to the wine tactile impression. Still rather austere; this will need considerable bottle aging.
