This extraordinary wine is black/purple-colored and displays intense aromas of candied black fruits cinnamon Asian spices and fresh herbs. This massively large broad magnificently balanced proportioned and deeply ripe behemoth coats the palate with super-sweet black cherries and blueberries whose flavors seemingly last forever. Its firm structure and huge oak flavors are drowned in fruit as are its copious quantities of fine tannins. It should be drunk between 2002 and 2010.

Very classy. Almost like blackberry jam it's so concentrated and focused but a bit rigid at the moment. Great intensity of fruit richness and supple tannins finishing with pure fruit. Delicious. Best from 2001 through... Very classy. Almost like blackberry jam it's so concentrated and focused but a bit rigid at the moment.

Deep ruby-red. Explosive superripe nose of black raspberry iron smoked meat and roasted coffee. Thick sweet and velvety but currently offers more texture than flavor. This is quite unforthcoming in the middle palate. But... Deep ruby-red. Explosive superripe nose of black raspberry iron smoked meat and roasted coffee. Thick sweet and velvety but currently offers more texture than flavor. This is quite unforthcoming in the middle palate. But extremely long on the finish with fine grained tannins thoroughly supported by extract. May ultimately prove to be richer and finer than Mortet's very strong '95.
