Bold and rich, but restrained. Tightly wound now, but manages to push a load of dense blackberry and currant flavors across the palate. Framed by a judicious use of vanilla-laced oak. Tannins are firm yet integrated. Give this youngster time, either by decanting or cellaring.
Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and minerals, with a medicinal aspect and a hint of tarry oak. Juicy, firm-edged flavors of black fruits, minerals, licorice, mint and tarry oak; reminded me of a young Rauzan-Segla. Finishes with excellent length, even if the tannins are a bit tougher and less sweet than those of the 2003. 90(+?) points.
