Vinous, May 1999
Superb dark ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry, cassis and smoke. Lush, layered and sweet; already shows compelling inner-mouth flavor, surprising in light of the 3.6 pH, which is lower than normal for this... expand Superb dark ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry, cassis and smoke. Lush, layered and sweet; already shows compelling inner-mouth flavor, surprising in light of the 3.6 pH, which is lower than normal for this wine. Still, the acids are harmonious and ripe. Longer and sweeter on the back end than the '97. Tannins are dense and mouthcoating but thoroughly ripe. -Stephen Tanzer collapse
Wine Spectator, January 1999
Fresh and vivacious with chocolate cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a medium fruity finish. Needs a bit more fruit concentration to be outstanding but well done. Best after... expand Fresh and vivacious with chocolate cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a medium fruity finish. Needs a bit more fruit concentration to be outstanding but well done. Best after 1999. -JS collapse
