Severely oaked with a roasted nose equal to baked plums mixed with crushed espresso beans. Ultrarich in the mouth, with sweet, syrupy flavors that don't come across soft because the tannins are immense. This is not your average wine, and the nose is downright overwhelming. But it has some very impressive dark-berry flavors and it certainly should improve through 2006. Imported by Moët Hennessy USA.
