*Ranked #5, Top 100 Wines of 2001* This is very fresh and multidimensional on the nose and palate. Aromas of blackberry, grilled meat and fresh mushrooms follow through to a full body, with a solid core of firm yet silky tannins and a chocolate, berry and meaty finish. Luscious and opulent. Tight and beautiful. (Web-2009) (JS)
This saturated purple-colored 1998 offers sumptuous aromas of prunes, blueberries, overripe black cherries, chocolate, coffee, and spicy new oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and expressive, this flamboyant/ostentatious effort is crammed with glycerin and extract. The tannin is sweet in this accessible, multilayered 1998. (RP)
No tasting note given.
Red-ruby. Roasted plum, raspberry, meat and grilled nuts on the nose. Silky and lush for '98, but with no shortage of underlying structure. Quite full and complex. Finishes with superb sweetness and persistence and thoroughly fine tannins. This is really impressively silky for the year. (ST)
Very deep healthy crimson -- still with notes of blue. Very rich and seductive on the nose. Fully evolved nose -- very well married elements. Complete and impressive. Very fine tannins underneath should keep it going. Long. Well constructed. Rich, full and dramatic. 17.5/20 points.
