Expert Reviews

92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Red-ruby color, not quite as saturated as the '96. More roasted and less minerally than the '96: notes of black fruit, game, and toasty oak. Tightly wrapped and rather taut today, but offers terrific concentration and length. Today the wine tannins are very visible, and perhaps not quite as sweet as those of the '96, and firm acids are not yet in complete harmony with the wine. But this will be superb with six to eight years of bottle aging.

This wine started out great and got better as the night progressed.
I'm not impressed

4/05 An understated nose followed by soft, sweet and balanced fruit with well disguised tannins, classic cab flavors of tobacco, cedar and cigar box but ultimately lacking in complexity and unfortunately not a truly memorable wine
