Sleek and well-structured, with a braid of exotic smoke, currant, green olive and herbal flavors that drape together nicely, holding a tight focus and showing how ripe, supple tannins can integrate without dominating. Finishes with a dash of mocha and spice. (Web-2005)
The 1995 boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as an attractive bouquet with lavish quantities of toasty new oak and black currants. There is moderate tannin, good purity, and an open-knit, sexy style. If the wine had not fallen a bit short on the mid-palate, it would have merited an even higher score. It should drink well for 10-15 years.
Saturated ruby-red. Highly nuanced, floral aromas of red berries, baking spices, leather and smoky, roasted oak. Sweet and attractive in the mouth, with supple red berry and spicy oak flavors supported by lively acids. Finishes fairly tannic and quite spicy; turned dry with aeration and rather overwhelmingly oaky.
