At this stage, the 1997s look to be the finest wines Gaja has ever made. My enthusiasm is obviously due in part to the stylistic preference I have for more opulently textured wines with lower acidity and thus a broader window of drinkability. The black/purple-colored 1997 Darmaggi Cabernet Sauvignon possesses fabulous extract, huge quantities of tannin, sensational unctuosity, thickness, and richness, and fabulously pure black fruits intertwined with pain grille and earth. The wine is totally unevolved, but loaded with fabulous potential. Its low acidity suggests it will be drinkable before 995 or 1996. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.

There are 1,000 cases of the exceptional, black/purple-colored 1997 Darmagi Cabernet Sauvignon (3-4% Cabernet Franc was added to the blend). With abundant quantities of smoky, concentrated fruit as well as tannin, the vintage's low acid, thick, glycerin-imbued character, and a layered, full-bodied finish, it should develop nicely for two decades.
