A dense ruby/purple color is followed by an excellent Pauillac offering plenty of black currant and cherry fruit as well as spice box notes, good acidity and ripe tannin. Medium-bodied, rich, pure and textured, it is an impressive, forward, precociously styled effort to enjoy over the next 10-15 years.
