Garnet colour with pink/orange tinges on the rim. Aromas of dried flowers, balsamico, blackcurrant, vanilla, mint, and mocha. Medium-full bodied and tannic, but very fresh tasting in the mouth, showing red fruits, mocha, and balsamico. Fresh finish, ~45-50s with red currant notes. Needs more cellar time, as this wine is just beginning to blossom. 91 points (05/20/2004).
