This is both more elegant and much less wood influenced with its pretty, pure and complex array of notably floral aromas, in particular those of violet, which complement the plum, cassis and discreet earth scents. The delineated and stony middle weight flavors display equally good purity and plenty of vivacity while delivering fine length on the moderately austere and firm finale. At least some patience will be in order here.
