Smooth and polished with detailed flavors of ripe plum black cherry spice and light oak this pedigreed red turns rich and elegant with a long complex aftertaste. Best from 2001 through 2008. -JL

Deep ruby color darker for its age than the '97. Slightly roasted aromas of black fruits toffee leather tobacco mocha and dark chocolate; exhilarating suggestion of crystallized berries. Lush and velvety in the mouth... Deep ruby color darker for its age than the '97. Slightly roasted aromas of black fruits toffee leather tobacco mocha and dark chocolate; exhilarating suggestion of crystallized berries. Lush and velvety in the mouth; already displays wonderful sweetness and layered texture. Very strong back end features chewy ripe tannins. A very successful '96 showing beautifully today.
