Massages the intense tannins with supple currant and plum-laced flavors, shows off cedar, spice and mineral, too. Holds its focus through the long and complex finish. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. (JL)
The outstanding 1995 (2,800 cases made from a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot) is somewhat overwhelmed when tasted next to the extraordinary 1996 and 1997. The wine's opaque purple color is followed by copious quantities of toast, cassis, tobacco, earth, and spice in a full-blown bouquet. Full-bodied, with superb purity, and a gorgeous marriage of power and elegance, this classic offering should age effortlessly for 20-25+ years. (RP)
Red-ruby color. Perfumed aromas of dark berries, nutmeg, and nutty, spicy oak. Bright, juicy and tightly wrapped, with excellent flavor intensity and firm but harmonious acids. Quite backward today and in need of patience. Best today on the persistent aftertaste, which features firm but integrated tannins and a spicy dark berry flavor. (ST) 90+
