Dark cherry aromas and beautifully integrated oak with attractive mint-menthol notes grace the complex nose. The flavors are very complex as well, with tart cherry, licorice, balsamic, prune and cocoa notes dancing on the palate. Big in scale but very well balanced, with a long dry finish and firm but not sharp tannins. Truly excellent.
Full red-ruby. Explosive aromas of raspberry, cherry, dark chocolate and spicy, charred oak. Thick, dense and sweet, with penetrating, deep flavor. Wonderful combination of sweetness and vinosity. Really expands in the mouth and suffuses the palate. Finishes with very fine, palate-saturating tannins and terrific persistence. In comparison to this wine, the '97 is more dominated by its wood element. A very fresh, impressively structured wine that's developing slowly. Showing spectacularly today-even better than a bottle I sampled not long after the bottling last spring. (ST)
The wine boasts an opaque purple color, followed by exquisite blackberry liqueur notes intermixed with smoke, licorice, and new oak scents. It displays a brilliantly focused, ripe, concentrated style with full body, gobs of fruit, a viscous, creamy texture, and a lusty finish with beautifully integrated acidity and tannin. (RP)
