Grape and blackberry flavors hold the fort down on the palate, and cassis is the main player on the nose. Although it is a very good wine, the feel here is dry, thick and woodsy—a curious thing considering that St. Henri is traditionally matured in old oak vats. Alcohol is also evident on both nose and palate. I love St. Henri in general, but this young one is looking a little awkward. Imported by Southcorp Wines.
