Complex Burgundian nose displaying earthy cherry and charcoal notes along with a touch of cola. In the mouth quite austere and without much charm at this young age. Needs another year or two. For now, fairly tight and tannic and more interesting than pleasurable. [Purchased at restaurant; retail price estimated.] - HK 2011-08-22
