Tasting Notes

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis and enticing smoky oak. Smooth on the palate but with very good delineation and verve. This comes across as fruitier than the merlot. Juicy but not especially fleshy. Ripe, dusty tannins spread out nicely over the palate." (May/June 00) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full black-currant aromas with some briar and dust. Blackberry fruit on the palate, but most of all lots of charred oak manifested as coffee and bitter chocolate. In golf, this would be a middle-of-the fairway drive, but without the distance. It’s fresh and well made. " (11/00) According to the Wine Spectator: "Wonderful balance of intense, ripe, complex currant, cherry, anise and sage-laced flavors that gain richness and depth on the finish, where the tannins firm up. Best from 2001 through 2009." (04/2000)
