Notes: It appears deep ruby-purple with good tears. On the nose it's clean offering med+ intensity of old leather, tobacco, pencil lead and incense, interesting iron notes, on top of black cherries, brack currants and plums. Juniper berries and dark chocolate appear on the final.   On the palate is dry, with med+ acidity, medium to medium+ fine (chocolate powder) tannins, medium alcohol, medium+ body and very good flavor intensity. Medium+ finish. Although woody and spicy notes are dominant with respect fruit, the wine has an overall complexity, balance  and poise that make it really really enjoyable.
Good to Very-Good quality, Drink Now will keep for several years, High Price. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Pessac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France.
