Restrained, spicy, smoky, dark berry, cedar, and cassis nose leads to a masculine, chewy, still somewhat tannic mouth feel. This wine has softened considerably in the past two years and is much more charming now than earlier in its development. Not especially complex but very drinkable at this point. - HK 2005-01-25
