Black cherries, leather, pomegranates, cloves, dry tobacco, vanilla bean, quince. Youthful acidity, medium bodied, silky mouthfeel, soft juicy tannins. Oak flavors developed with time. Elegant, can easily be cellared for another 17 years. Decanting recommended.

Very balanced, still fruity, delicate oak, velvet tannins, calmed down acid. Great age for great wine.
