Ruby-red. Complex aromas of cassis, plum, black pepper, black olive and leather. Plush, pliant and seamless yet quite firm, with youthful flavors of cassis, plum and leather. Dense and solidly structured, with sound acidity. Finishes with dusty tannins and noteworthy persistence. (ST)
This proprietary red wine is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. A complex nose of cedar, black fruits, tobacco, spice box, and new wood emerges from this dark ruby/purple-colored effort. Rich and moderately tannic, with excellent to outstanding flavor extraction and overall balance, this 1996 should prove to be long-lived and satisfying. The texture is rich, not compressed or clipped, and the acidity, tannin, and alcohol are well-integrated. (RP)
