Creamy, minty and full of cedar, with sweet, ripe dark fruits backing things up. This is one rich, beefy red; it deals plenty of vanilla and butter on the palate, with clove and mint on the finish. A lot of protruding oak and tannin now; should settle and soften by 2007. Imported by Winesellers Ltd.
