Opaque red/purple with some paling at rim.
Perfumed nose with cassis, mint and leafy aromas - a touch of almonds and oak coming through.
Fairly full with intense, pure, sweet cassis fruit.
Well rounded with firm tannins and good balance.
Long, minty, dry finish.
Very impressive now with food, but should be kept for 3 to 6 years.
Wine Tasting: 1996 Bordeaux
