The new proprietary wine, the 2002 Aida, is a 650-case blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot. A remarkable offering from the Aida’s rocky soils, it is a full-bodied, deep purple-colored effort with a big, sweet nose of creosote, creme de cassis, raspberry, pepper, and a hint of garrigue (similar to the Zinfandel). In the mouth, it is tannic, full-bodied, concentrated, and surprisingly seamless. This wine can be approached now, but promises to evolve nicely for 10-15 years. (RP)
Full ruby. Superripe aroma of roasted plum. Sweet, supple and dense, with flavors of cassis, chocolate and licorice firmed by ripe acidity. Not particularly complex but finishes with soft, suave tannins and rising fruit. From warm soil that winemaker Philippe Melka describes as 'Chateauneuf du Pape-like,' noting that the fruit here is normally picked early. (ST)
