Blackberry and plum on the dark brooding nose with subtle notes of coffee saddle leather and just a touch of mint. Still lively on the palate the fruit mixes with earth and oak on the midpalate offering excellent complexity and tremendous structure at this point in its life. The tannins remain firm and linger through a long finish. This is still very much alive and does not seem anywhere near the end of its drinking window. This is an excellent example of what a tremendous vintage 1997 was for Napa.
