Deep ruby. Wild aromas of blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, maple syrup, game, cedar and wintermint; initially rather high-pitched but showed a stronger '96-typical torrefaction aspect with aeration. Very deep and layered, but with none of the easy sweetness that characterizes so much Napa cabernet. A rather Old World style of cabernet, with slightly sauvage flavors of dark berries, leather and blood. Finishes subtle, spicy and very long, with substantial but rather suave tannins. Structured to reward time in bottle.
