Healthy dark red. Wild aromas of black cherry, game and leather. Wonderfully silky and fine-grained, with intense flavors of black cherry, dark berries, herbs and spices nicely framed by strong acidity. This is more evolved than the 1996 and shows slightly harder tannins but is still full of life. There's a lovely subtle fruit sweetness here but this firmly structured wine is almost astringent compared to the 1996. This may still be a bit short of full maturity. (ST)
