I loved this wine, which I would put up there with many a classified growth. Deeply colored, virile, richly textured red that's still a baby but drinking beautifully now with a little aeration. Deep dark berries and floral notes in the nose, along with a touch of toasty oak. In the mouth classic Cassis and tobacco nuances emerge. Gets better and better as it unfolds in the glass. Unbelievably good bargain. - HK 2022-10-26
