It is slightly higher in alcohol (14.3%) than the 1995 with allspice black currants loamy soil and toasty scents. In the mouth this is a powerful muscular concentrated Cabernet with more noticeable (and slightly rougher) tannin than either the 1994 or 1995. The backward outstanding 1996 will be a wine to put away for at least 5-6 years. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.

Claret-like aromas of plum currant earth and smoke with an intriguing vegetal complexity adding to its appeal. Lush fleshy and ripe; noteworthy flavor development gives this wine considerable early personality. Finishes with strong but sweet tannins and persistent plummy flavor. 90 points
