Dense black fruit with complex spice, chalkiness, cedar and Eucalyptus on the nose. Tobacco, mulberry, black olives and dark cherry fills a bold palate with an endless backbone of acidity lined with a core of firm ripe tannins. This is certainly denser, richer and creamier than the elegant 2008 vintage, but classically styled with tremendous balance and perfume. Seductive, polished and refined.
