1999 vintage - drinking well but showing a little age - Have always thought this maker was under-rated (& under-priced) for the quality - a good wine

Full bodied without being overwhelming. Bright flavor. Was great with a steak and full meal.

Give it a few hours and it won't disappoint. Soft chocolate notes by day 2. Needs another few years.
