The 1997 Hermitage Le Pavillon displays a saturated purple color and a fabulously intense nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with floral scents smoke licorice tar and Chinese black tea aromas. There is wonderful concentration massive body and a monster finish in this decadently rich Hermitage. It possesses low acidity but lots of concentration extract and length. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2035. Importer: Paterno Imports Lake Bluff IL; tel. (847) 604-8900</P>

Blackberry violet tar shoe polish and game on the nose plus a light floral note; at once vibrant and surmuri. Superconcentrated remarkably intense flavors of crystallized black cherry cassis and licorice. An extremely persistent wine of noteworthy finesse yet also one with a powerful structure for aging. One of the standouts of the vintage. 94(+?) points
