A heavyweight bruiser of a wine this is extremely oaky inky purple-colored and incredibly concentrated. With a massive tannic structure that towers over the fruit it has the impenetrable texture of a young Château Latour. So extracted it hurts the mouth. Best from 1999 through 2010. 1250 cases made. –TM
