Opaque black/red with some gradual pinking towards rim.
Perfumed and pure aromas of cassis, nuts, bark and new oak.
Full bodied with sweet, intense plum fruit; creamy, tangy oak; tobacco and lots of alcohol.
Warm with soft tannins and a long finish.
Very attractive now and over the next 5 to 6 years.
Wine Tasting: 1996 Bordeaux
