Tasted by GrapeRover. Splendid deep purple. Great viscosity. Powerful nose of dark, spicy fruits, harmoniously welded on well developed tannins. Clear vanilla / cedar tones. Soft, voluptuous palate with ripe and quite elegant tones of blackberry, black pepper and plum. Broad and robust body with a long and complex finish. This vintage sure has a long lived future.
