Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Dark ruby-red. Exotic, vibrant aromas of cherry, redcurrant, tobacco, mint, cigar ash and white pepper. Thick, supple and very concentrated; really uncanny creamy sweetness and texture in the middle palate. Intriguing note of sarsaparilla. Substantial but utterly suave tannins are thoroughly buffered by the wine extract. Shows some of the sauvage qualities of past vintages of this wine, but here the fresh red fruit flavors are even fresher and more concentrated than usual.

Worth the price

Liquid silk! I cellared this one for several years, and it probably could have gone a couple of more years. Very intense, with a myriad of complex flavors going on. A wonderful bottle that changed as it "aired out", currants, pepper, smoke...all delights to the pallet. Bottom line: Treat yourself, you won't be disappointed!

Or should I say over-priced? Still an excellent wine that will only get better with some time.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
