Expert Reviews

95 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2003

($81) Saturated medium-deep ruby. Exotic aromas of black fruit liqueur, road tar, smoked meat and hot stones; this reminded me of a great ripe-year Hermitage. Hugely rich and dense, with compelling sweetness and pliancy but also sound framing acidity. Extremely youthful and very long on the aftertaste. Finishes with suave but strong tannins and excellent grip and thrust. Like the best examples of the vintage, this won't injure your palate if you broach a bottle today, but it's structured for extended aging. (Kobrand, Inc., New York, NY)

PERFECTION
03/06/2003
by Bill Gray
RUBY BLACK COLOR. SEXY, EXOTIC NOSE OF SWEET PLUMS, INTENSE RED AND BLACK CURRANTS, FRESH BAKED SPICE CAKE AND OAK. SUPER ATTACK OF FRESH RIPE PLUMS, RED CURRANTS AND BLACK RASPBERRIES. PERFECTLY BALANCED AND SEAMLESS, SPICEY AND FLAMBOYANT, THIS WINE IS CLOSE TO PERFECTION IN THE MOUTH. WITH A 60 SECOND FINISH, THE TASTE SYMPHONY SEEMS TO GO ON FOREVER. ALTHOUGH A 25 TO 30 YEAR WINE, IT IS AMAZINGLY ENJOYABLE NOW.
