Such a pretty wine. Much more on the elegant side of CdP. Drinking at what seems to be at peak right now. Purple with ruby swirls. The nose has cherries, black cherries, slight cedar, nutmeg and other spices. On the palate, this is soft and accessible. Still, deep and with tight layering. It gently unwinds in the glass. Nice finish. This works easily with medium and heavier foods. Vary tasty. Not a dominant wine, this will work better on its own than with a bunch of wines.
