This was a very Big and Bold bordeaux blend in this awesome vintage. The palate consisted of cherries, anise, pencil shavings and a very cool velvety finish. This wine lasted for a good 3 minutes on my palate. I loved it. Wish I had bought more than I did!
After 3 vintages of this wine, I cannot wait for the next three! This particular vintage has very nice cotton candy and other light fruits. For some odd reason I rather liked it after it completely warmed up to room temp unlike previous vintages.
