This well-respected Duboscq product is dark with just a remnant of oak on a nose dominated by black currant and (perhaps) some cola. It exceeds expectation for the vintage with more flavor and balance than early reviews predicted. Admittedly, there is a certain tightness and tannic presence that detracts slightly, but this lingering after-taste is minor and promises a better result with up to 5 years more bottle aging. The palate is presented with a slightly one-dimensional profile, but the finish is long and reasonably pleasant. The wine is also well-made and is decent value in today's market.
