An intensely concentrated powerful vintage with fine smooth tannins and a spicy, warming finish.
This sexy mother of a wine struts forth with an opaque plum/ruby/purple color and terrific notes of creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herbs and smoky barbecue.

This is a fabulous Talbot to drink over the next 20-25 years
