The wine possesses a light to medium gold color. It also possesses an opulent full-bodied exotic lavishly rich personality moderate sweetness and huge quantity of extract glycerin and alcohol in its finish. The wine is also extremely young and unevolved. It can be drunk now but purchasers are advised to wait until the turn of the century and enjoy it over the following two decades. Last tasted 11/94

Lively aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and smoky, charry oak. Thick and rather backward on the palate, but already shows a graceful balance between the juicy citrus fruit tones and the strong oak spice. Very concentrated, and a bit monolithic today. A big wine that has not yet assumed its adult shape. 90+

Stands out in this crowd because of its stylish lilac violet floral rose petal scents that delight from start to finish medium-to-full body and sweetness plus a long finish. Better in 1998.
