Another wine in what we have come to call the 'black-beauty' style. It has heavily toasted oak, espresso, black cherry and menthol aromas and flavors. The fruit seems subdued here, but the wine is nevertheless well integrated, with a full mouthfeel and long finish.
Possesses a Bordeaux-like austerity, as well as abundant quantities of sweet cassis, cedar, and spice notes in the complex bouquet. The dark ruby color is followed by a dense, concentrated wine with an emphasis on elegance and symmetry as opposed to power and flamboyance. The finish is quite tannic. (RP)
Pleasantly funky, with a mix of leather, sage, and dried currant and ending with drying tannins. *Ranked #17 on the "Top 100 Wines" of 2001* (Web—2008)
