Expert Reviews

90+ Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2000

Bright deep ruby. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice and earth. Dense, juicy flavors of dark berries dominated by rather penetrating acids. Tougher and even more backward than the Napa Valley bottling, but longer and sweeter on the back end. Finishes with powerful toothcoating tannins. Both this and the Napa bottling show much stronger acidity than they did from barrel last winter, a few months prior to the bottling.
