Expert Reviews

88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2002

Bright red-ruby. Captivating aromas of currant, smoky French oak, coffee, game and animal fur. Sweet and meaty in the mouth, with lovely texture and suggestions of exotic spices. Opens out nicely on the back half in a way that few of these '87s do; has a mouthfeel I can only describe as claret-like. A firmly structured wine, with rich, evolved flavors. Finishes with broad, ripe tannins.

It's a classic wine!!!

Unforgettable oaky flavor with a hint of high quality cigar flavor. Complex and smooth with a long long finish. Dark ruby red. Bid this wine on line for $250. It's very classic like the French Grand Cru Chateaus such as Lafite and Latour. Drink now!

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.
