Excellent deep color. Pungent oak, talc, and black raspberry on the nose, with a suggestion of superripeness. Lush and sweet; not a blockbuster but quite suave. But compared to the even riper '95 this shows a faint green quality. Should give pleasure early. (ST)
One of the stars of the vintage, this opaque purple-colored wine possesses a gorgeously perfumed, exotic, smoky, blackcurrant, Asian spice, and sweet vanillin-scented bouquet. It is followed by thick, rich, moderately tannic flavors that exhibit medium to full body, good structure, outstanding purity, and a classically layered, long, pure finish. (RP)
An extremely well-balanced and well-crafted wine. Shows impressive dried cherry, cassis and dried herb character. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a mineral, cassis aftertaste. (JS)
