Saint Émilion, Libourne, Bordeaux, FranceSmoky, coffee, peppery, vanilla, meaty, black cherry, leather, barnyard aromas. Riper, rounder palate and juicy with suave tannins. Black cherry, coffee, smoky, briar, olive, five spice, peppery, tobacco flavours with a meaty, barnyard streak. Good intensity and balance if a bit oaky and bitter at this point. More modern style but needs 3-5 years to integrate.
