"Palish medium red. Rather wild aromas and flavors of strawberry, underbrush and iron. Supple in the middle palate, with a touch of sweetness, then distinctly drier on the back end. Could use a bit more thickness of fruit to buffer its tannins, but not bad. Boillot finds this wine pleasant to drink now." (VM)
