Deep dark scarlet. Nice vibrant color. Very direct nose. Notes of tart cherries, pencil lead, cranberries, moist soil and some tree bark. Very rich in the mouth. Nice acidity, tannins soft and integrated. Still young and primary. Needs more age and development.

Ripe and big, unusual for the vintage, a slight hint of green, but overall a very pleasant surprise and lots of life ahead.

Classic nose of cedar, menthol, decaying leaves, classic St. estephe forest floor in action. Good palate a bit blocky and unexciting, and dilutes on the finish. Somewhat watery and not held together. Weird.
