This is a complex, leaner styled Burgundy. Fragrant, balanced. All it lacks is a little more oomph in the mid-palate.
Medium ruby color with garnet highlights, and some browning at the rim. With air, the nose reveals multiple scents: ripe yet slightly sour cherry, pleasantly subdued woody notes, damp, gravelly earth, maple syrup. Initially fills the mouth, then leans out quickly, but minerally, sour cherry syrup notes cling in the finish. A very nice wine to have with a roast chicken. Drink up over the next 18 months. B+. Imported by Chelsea Ventures, Chicago, this was $29.99 from Flickingerwines.com.
