Deep purple, little on the nose, swirling brings out mint. Smooth textured entry with lots of violet perfume but little fruit on the initial palate. The tannins are rather fierce and dominating, refusing to let go. The fruit does show through, but is acidic and thin compared to others from the vintage. There is an interesting birch sap twist to the citrussy finish. 86-88. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013.
