Full deep medium ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of plum, currant, licorice and tobacco. Fat, sweet and huge, with compellingly layered ripeness and great projection of fruit flavors. A classic version of this generous year. Finishes ripely tannic and impressively persistent. (ST)
A prodigious wine is the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Bancroft Ranch. Opaque purple-colored, with an extroverted, floral, blueberry, mineral, and black currant-scented bouquet, this formidably endowed Cabernet possesses dazzling concentration, explosive richness that stains the palate, and finishes with sensational extract and balance. The tannin is high, but sweet and well-integrated. This large-scaled, muscular, mountain Cabernet Sauvignon will require 3-5 years of patience. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. (RP)
