Deep ruby in color. The nose is slightly dusty with black cherries. On the palate, this has ripe black cherries. This seemed different than earlier vintages. LVMH bought this winery in 2008 so perhaps a bit different in philosophy. Not as concentrated and wild. It is a very good wine that will work with a wide variety of foods.
