V. Sattui makes a Reserve Stock wine only in exceptional years and then only from the absolute best lots of wine available at the winery. The 1997 Reserve Stock is no exception. Only the very best barrels from V. Sattui's flagship vineyards were selected. Out of almost 700 barrels, 20 were elevated to Reserve status by very stringent thresholds. The nose is full and pungent with pronounced notes of cherry, plum, cocoa, and to a lesser degree vanilla and tobacco from the new sixty-gallon French oak barrels in which it was aged. The wine is medium-full bodied, rich, lush, very well-balanced with soft tannins. It has a pleasant finish, a rich, long aftertaste, and is very drinkable now but shows some incredible promise.
