Excellent, complex, perfumed nose displays pronounced smokiness - almost like tobacco - along with earthy dark currant and dark berry fruit. A serious dose of sweet herbs and spices, as well as violets, complement the fruit. Flavorful and satisfying, though taut and focused rather than flamboyant; extremely French-like in feel. It was very tight when young, but has developed beautifully in the last two years and should hold for a few more. - HK 2011-06-28
