Canon la Gaffeliere, St. Emilion 1998

Deep, slightly dull, red.

Vinturi - Awesome, totally sexy nose of fresh herbs, smoky oak/grilled meat with raspberry and hazelnut underneath.

Round and dense in the mouth - earth, herbs and raspberry raspberry repeating. No extraneous textural sweetness, mid-palate suffused with grainy tannin. This still has another decade or more to go. Killer action.

$50 on release?
