Semi-opaque, light brown and burn orange in color, cold campfire, cigar box, dried cranberries, roses and hints of forest floor. On the lighter side of Medium-bodied, nicely balanced with mellow red berry fruit, silky tannin and complementing acidity. Plenty of sweet fruit providing the backbone. Holding up nicely to this great vintage, very mellow with a highly polished character. Medium length, drink now.
Poured out of magnum. Still dark at the core with some bricking at the rim. An enticing nose of pine sap intermixed with dark berry fruit. A nice perfume with hints of forest floor. Medium bodied, surprising amounts of residual sugar, the acidity makes the mouth water slightly with moderate tannin in the background. Delicate yet powerful in the mouth, very enjoyable mature bordeaux that's drinking nicely now. Slightly short on the finish.
