This wine exhibits all of the hallmarks of a good Bordeaux blend: balance with power, poise with spirit. Its gamy, spicy nose leads into elegant, supple layers of earthy spice, brooding fruit and a lingering finish. This wine can age but it's good right now. Imported by Sante Wines.
Aromas of honey, brown sugar and bread dough give way to a nutty palate with just enough acidity to balance the very high level of sweetness. The medium-length finish is shot through with zippy notes of lemon rind.
