The healthy ruby/purple color is followed by classic unevolved but promising aromas of minerals cedar smoke and black currants. The wine is medium to full-bodied with admirable purity a sweet lush mid-palate and ripe tannin in the finish. The top-notch 1997 is a classic restrained. Anticipated maturity: now-2020. Tel.

Lush and sweet but fresh with a firm edge of acidity giving shape to the flavors. Big and mouthfilling but not at all heavy. The tannins are suave and fine. A bit dominated by the oak today. This wine is virtually always in an awkward stage about six months after the bottling says Bart Araujo although I recall that the '96 was atypically showy a year ago. 92(+?) points
