Always a great value in Bordeaux. Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is very tight. Black cherry fruit, tobacco and spice. Full bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, this is tight. With air, cassis and coffee notes. Moderate finish. This seems tight and already shutting down. If drinking soon, give it some air, but better to wait five years. Drink over the next twelve to fifteen.
