All five of the prime red Bordeaux varieties comprise this rich and deep wine that drives on with persistence even if it has some hollowness at the core. Aromas of currants and raspberry make for a nice nose. The palate is bold with the taste of cherries, the finish sharply focused and herbal. —M.S.
