It doesn't get any better than 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon a perfect wine. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries minerals licorice and toast this full-bodied multi-dimensional classic is fabulous with extraordinary purity symmetry and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. It has the overall equilibrium to evolve for nearly two decades but it will be hard to resist upon release. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.

...potent wine of finesse and grace this weaves together a rich and complex array of cedary currant toasty oak hazelnut and black cherry flavors that finish in a long intricate aftertaste...

Complex, individual nose combines black raspberry, cassis, blood orange, cocoa powder, bitter chocolate, smoke and earth. Intensely flavored, fresh and sharply delineated, with notes of cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate and meat, and strong oakiness. Leaner than the '96 at a similar stage, but grew a bit denser and sweeter with aeration. Finishes rather oaky, with firm tannins and very good length. Conveys a strong impression of terroir, but I don't yet find the texture or depth of the best vintages of Screaming Eagle. 91+
