2006 Pensee de Lafleur

This is a deep purple wine with quite high intensity aromas of black plum, violet, mushroom, licorice, vanilla smoke and earth. It is dry with medium acidity, medium alcohol and bodied. Medium soft tannin. Higher than medium intensity flavours of black cherry, violet, licorice, smoke with touch of herbaceous. Longer than medium length with black cherry finish. (91) Reasonable complexity and intensity but it needs some time to integrate well.
