Even on the nose there is an attractive character lightly aromatic with cassis, violets and cocoa notes. The palate is gentle, with polished tannins that are firm and focused. This wine is delicate, layered and fresh with nice concentration a more successful vintage compared to the past 3 years. The tannins are seamless and very fine.by jeannie cho lee 2015
