Good dark red. Aromas of dark raspberry, plum, spices, mocha and truffley underbrush suggest a concentrated wine.

Aromas of dark raspberry, plum, spices, mocha and truffley underbrush suggest a concentrated wine. With a pH of 3.74, this wine shows a bit more warmth than the 1994 but the black cherry, plum and dark chocolate flavors are nicely framed by juicy acidity and firm-edged tannins. Not quite as harmonious as the '94.

Medium to full-bodied with a firm underpinning of tannin classic black currant flavors and a long finish this effort is impressive but tight and narrowly-constructed. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020.
