Not quite as dark as the Baron but still a very healthy garnet with some development at the rim. Pretty herbaceous on the nose, strong capsicum and that note of lavender that seems to appear as herbaceousness ages. Again herbaceous on the palate, tannins drier than some but it finishes very fresh thanks to that leafiness. Starting to dry a bit as the fruit on the middle is not (or no longer) very generous. (JH)
