WS98
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 2004
A magnificent wine that shows massive structure yet loads of finesse. Dark-colored, with incredible aromas of blackberries, treacle tart and smoke. Almost meaty.

Primary black fruit flavors are complicated by tobacco, chocolate and exotic oak notes... ...Superripe aromas of cassis, blackberry and licorice. Dense, sweet and impressively concentrated; a real fruit bomb in the mouth. Primary black fruit flavors are complicated by tobacco, chocolate and exotic oak notes. Finishes very long and sweet, with lush, ripe tannins. As youthful as this is today, it's already quite sexy...
