This wine is initially tight, but with airing, aromas of licorice, spice box, berries, herbs, and leather emerge. It is a medium- to full-bodied, well-made, attractive, well-structured effort. Anticipated maturity: now-2015. Last tasted, 3/02.

Sweet, exotic (late-picked) fruit. Intense and ripe palate. New style winemaking here. Plump, fleshy St Emilion. (FV 16)
