gently offers up layers of complexity and enjoyment. At first the prototypical violet aromas wafting from the glass, followed by cassis and vanilla notes in excellent balance. The palate continues with blackberries, black plum, maybe turning to cedar and and earthy quality. The length is excellent and the acidity and tannins are in harmony. A very enjoyable wine from a weaker vintage, this could be held 3-5 but is very good already. --Mathew Hall
