Undoubtedly a success for the vintage, this immensely charming, dark ruby/purple-colored wine exhibits floral, black currant, and smoky, toasty oak aromas. There is admirable richness, excellent ripeness, not a great deal of density, or superb concentration, but plenty of finesse, suppleness, and character. It can be drunk young, or cellared for 12-15 years.

It is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine exhibits a dense purple color, followed by an open-knit, charming nose of crème de cassis, pain grillé, and minerals. In the mouth, the wine reveals beautifully ripe fruit, low acid, a suave, silky textured, remarkable suppleness and complexity for such a young wine, and a round, generous, moderately long finish.
