Sweet dense and packed with fruit; large-scaled and lush given shape by ripe acidity. More powerful than the Loreto but the big broad tannins are also extremely well buffered. Less expressive on the back end than the Loreto but shows outstanding length. Like the '97 this wine does not come across as especially oaky due to its sheer material.
