Medium ruby in color with beautiful saturation in the glass. A bright and perfumed nose highlights fresh cherries, rhubarb and floral notes of lilac. The palate is silky and forthcoming with bright fruit. The finish is plush and nicely textured, This vintage possesses enough tannin to permit additional aging. While this wine drinks well now it will show beautifully with additional cellaring of 5 to 7 years.
