Warm, light summer fruit nose.  Rich, musky fruit on the palate to start then tannins kick in on the mid-palate but they are mild and well-integrated.  Pleasant length, with a soft, musky tannin finish.

Opaque purple in colour, it offers up a brooding bouquet of earthy minerality, Asian spices, incense, and assorted black fruits. Velvety-textured, sweetly-fruited, layered, relatively forward, and lengthy, this seamless effort admirably reveals the strengths of the great 2009 vintage and is a superb value to boot.
