94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998

Very good deep red-ruby color. Fabulously expressive, superripe aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, maple syrup, toffee and roasted oak, with a floral topnote adding complexity. Thick, silky and amazingly sweet, with outstanding depth of flavor. As opulent and exotic as this wine is, it maintains lovely flavor definition. The toffee and smoky oak notes repeat on the palate. Suave tannins are buried in fruit. Wow!
