Fully mature, in fact, perhaps slightly past its peak, this wine displays plenty of chocolate, smoke, and coconut in a seductive style. As it sits in the glass, it begins to fade ever so slightly. This wine needs to be drunk up, although I suspect magnums of it would fully justify the outstanding rating I gave it seven years ago.
This is the Roc de Cambes' finest effort since the 1990. Notes of black cherry jam (kirsch) soar from the glass of this expansive, full-bodied, fleshy sexpot. Deep and chewy, with plenty of chocolate, cocoa, blackberry, and cherry fruit displayed in a flamboyant style, it is a knockout, sensual wine to drink now and over the next 10-12 years. It is also a sleeper of the vintage.
