Aromas of violet and blackberry, with a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. A solid wine for the vintage. A little more fruit on the finish would make this outstanding.
This stunningly rich sleeper of the vintage reveals oodles of herb-tinged black currant and cherry fruit, medium to full body, silky tannin, and low acidity. Gloriously fruity, soft, and classic in its aromatic and flavor dimensions, it can be enjoyed over the next decade. Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate 89 Points.
