Lovely nose. Very earthy, mineral and cooling. Mid season cherries. Classic nose. As far from modern as one can get. Juicy and ripe with wonderful velvety and classy tannins and freshness. Big fruit on the palate that is succulent and super velvety then finishes fresh and mineral with the fruit pushing the minerals on the very long finish. So juicy. Polished but traditional. Like Darnaud or Allemand. Palate is so diff than nose but both great

On the nose: cedar/leather. Taste: ripe cherry, cedar, juniper w/plenty of tannin to lay it down for 10+ years.
