The wine offers up restrained but gorgeously sweet earth, oak, mineral, and black fruit aromas. Full-bodied, with substantial quantities of glycerin and extract, this wine's large-scaled tannin seems to be well-submerged beneath the wine's fabulous layers of fruit. Although more accessible than I would have thought prior to bottling, it is a candidate for 20-30 years of evolution.

This is a beautifully crafted wine that will require, and reward, patience. It's tight and intense, with a big, ripe, rich core of spicy currant, plum and berry flavors, finishing with a complex earth and mineral nuance. Turns ruggedly tannic on the finish, so hands off.

Superripe but rather unforthcoming aromas of violet, blackberry and shoe polish; this rather inky, dense wine is in the process of shutting down. Remarkably sweet in the middle palate, with a ripe note of chocolate. Deeper-pitched than the '95. Finishes with slightly edgy tannins and superb persistence.
