Consistent notes. Dark ruby color, highly aromatic nose of black fruit, earthy spice, and smoked meat; follows through even more intensely on the palate; classic Cote Rotie; very rich & complex; dry with excellent definition; good balance of fruit, acid, and unobtrusive oak; soft integrated tannins; long complex finish. Delicious now and should continue to drink well for several more years.
