Very deep crimson. Glorious, almost blousy, Margaux nose ranging from baked apple to dates, raisins and brown sugar, finishing with a bit of campfire smoke. Full bodied, warm and harmonious on the palate. The fruit tastes fresher than the nose foretold, with overripe melon, plums and chokecherry flavours. Tannins are still a bit high; try it in 2020 with a rib steak rubbed with Montreal steak spice.
