Cherry red with ruby highlights. Complex, fine aromas. Round and well balanced on the palate, as a result of its long period in the bottle.
Vinous 90 Points
Deep ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries and vanilla on the perfumed nose. Smooth and accessible, offering sweet cherry-vanilla and coconut flavors and a hint of mocha. Fine-grained tannins come on late, adding shape to the long, smooth, appealingly sweet finish. Shows little of the tangy edge that I associate with so many wines from this vintage.-JR
