Expert Reviews

89-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Saturated, deep ruby-red. Sappy aromas of black cherry, graphite and roasted nuts. Very intensely flavored, dense and velvety, with ripe flavors dominated by black cherry, chocolate and sweet oak. Solid underlying backbone. Finishes firmly tannic and very long.
