The nose has light florals, mostly violet, and aromas of cedar. Black fruits lead, with a light background of red currants. From mid-palate to finish florals shine through. A great balance of acids and fine tannins make a nice food wine. Like many of the 2003 Bordeaux, this seems to be coming into its own right now. If you put up a case planning to hold it for a decade or two, start opening your bottles now. Drink with lamb chops. Highly Recommended. DH
