Crème de cassis complemented by floral, tobacco and incense notes on the brightly aromatic nose. Very well balanced, clean, and juicy, with good inner-mouth perfume and energy to the dark fruit, cedar, herb and graphite flavors. The finish features mounting tannins that teeter on the brink of drying. This seems to have picked up some flesh and volume with bottle age, but I hope the fruit outlives the tannins. It's a lovely wine that lacks only the power of the best vintages. -Ian D'Agata

The 1999 reveals forward open-knit notes of creme de cassis and earth. It is fleshy medium to full-bodied and succulent with supple tannin excellent balance as well as a long pure ripe finish. This seductive effort will drink well for 12-15 years possibly longer.
