The sensational black/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon 16th Anniversary Release is closed, but its emerging aromas of charcoal, blackberries, cassis, and minerals are promising. The wine is intense, ripe, with a layered, expansive richness, and exotic notes of Asian spices, beef blood, and assorted black fruits. Drink now-2025. (RP)
Saturated bright ruby. Black raspberry, sandalwood, and a slightly medicinal suggestion of Dr. Pepper on the superripe nose. Thick, deep and mouthfilling; intriguing flavors of black fruits, tobacco, leather and iron. Finishes with huge, toothcoating tannins that will require substantial bottle aging. An outsized wine that may ultimately merit a higher score. (ST) 91+
Spicy, fruity aromatics lead to a rich and supple wine with pretty currant, anise, cherry and blackberry flavors. Firms up on the finish, where a touch of chocolate emerges. (JL)
