With a good depth of color, the wine is round, ripe and loaded with black cherries, currants, blackberries, dark cocoa and earth. Lively, sweet and with good length, this is enjoyable now, but it is going to be even better with a few years of age.

Nice, easy drinking Haut Medoc to enjoy on the young side for its soft, ripe, black and red fruits and its earthy, tobacco tint. I'd polish this off before the wine hits its 10th birthday.
