Healthy dark red-ruby. A basket of red fruits on the nose, along with a suggestion of red licorice and slightly intrusive oakiness. Fat, plush and sweet, showing some very ripe notes and obvious woodiness. Very good for this cuvée but a bit oaky and sweet for this taster. Despite its substantial dusty tannins, this wine is likely to provide early pleasure.
