Its rose violet talcum powder and crushed berry-scented nose leads to a boisterous dense personality. Medium-to-full-bodied and loaded with spices freshly ground black pepper and blackberries this is a deeply ripe expressive wine. Projected maturity: now-2009.

An expressive nose amply reflects the ripeness of the '97 vintage with its floral and spicy black berry fruit aromas that are both elegant and refined while transitioning into rich sweet and full-bodied flavors that possess good muscle and solid if not sensational depth and length. In sum this is a quality '97 that should benefit from another 5 or so years in the cellar.
