Tasting Notes

(from vines at the bottom of the slope and thus with a bit more body, according to Laurent) Saturated, deep red-ruby. Explosive aromas of black raspberry, cocoa powder, roast coffee and game. Slightly reduced but impressively vibrant flavors of sappy wild berries and spices. Complex, dense and full, with plenty of early sex appeal. Finishes with substantial broad tannins and excellent length. A superb showing today. Tasted March 2005. Stephen Tanzer
