Dark colour; nice but not overpowering fruits on the nose; it was extremely fine and elegant on the palate with soft tannins and nice berry fruits; a long finish; I think this wine is now approacing its peak.

Very good color; high toned; elegant, classy nose of black fruit, spice, and leather; smilar on the palate; fullish body; very good round, soft, and well integrated tannins; ripe & with good if not great acidity; fat & seductive; med.-long finish; very good.

Some sediment in intense garnet core with tawny rim variation. Clean somewhat muted bouquet of leather, cassis, and figs with hints of cedar and smoke. Dry palate that was at first rather tight and boozy but opened with some airing to black fruits, dried figs and licorice. Drink now
