La Lagune 2002
Made in a pretty, elegant, fruity, dark ruby-hued style, the 2002 offers notes of allspice, plums, and resin, followed by attractive medium-bodied black cherry and currant flavors. Not a big wine, it is a well-balanced, elegant claret for enjoying over the next 7-8 years.

In a blind tasting, this might be mistaken for a lighter-styled Pinot Noir. The medium dark ruby color is accompanied by aromas of sweet and sour cherries, and hints of spice, pepper, and new wood. There is moderate density, good fruit, and considerable finesse, but the finish is short. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
