The nose is rel­a­tively fruity and rel­a­tively full. It re­veals slight notes of black­berry, ripe cherry and slight/ dis­creet hints of plum, gar­rigue as­so­ci­ated with a dis­creet hint of red fruits, a sub­tle hint of liquorice, flow­ers and a very dis­creet/im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of Cuben pep­per. The palate is fruity, fine, sleek, well-bal­anced and of­fers a slight racy min­eral frame, fat, a beau­ti­ful fi­nesse, acid­ity as well as a small suavity. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of ripe Bi­gar­reau cherry, black­berry and slight notes of blue­berry as­so­ci­ated with a hint of plum as well as dis­creet hint of carameliza­tion, toasted oak and vanilla. Tan­nins are firm. Good length. The fin­ish is suave and of­fers a dis­creet hint of gar­rigue. Good per­sis­tence.
