A brooding and very somber nose only grudgingly gives up its aromas of lightly spiced plum, earth and black raspberry. The dense, serious and overtly powerful flavors possess outstanding concentration and even though the very firm tannins are borderline chewy there is so much extract that there is a velvety texture to the explosively long, balanced and harmonious finish. This is strikingly impressive and clearly built to age.
Good full red. Initially subdued, tight nose exploded with aeration to reveal raspberry, dark cherry, celery seed and blood orange. Densely packed, juicy and sappy, conveying a strong impression of energy to the lightly saline flavors of red fruits, spices, game, earth and leather. Finishes very long, with serious but sweet tannins and outstanding lift. Not a fleshpot but beautifully balanced for aging. A great vintage for this cuvee. (ST)
