This was fantastic. Cassis, dark cherry, hints of menthol and cedar, earth notes, and hints of leather plenty of length.

Wonderful but a bit disjointed. Oak dominant. Still awesome and dynamic at 20yrs old!

Fruit is a bit soft - acid is strong, did not show nearly as well as other vintages.

Gorgeous wine! Vibrant, rich ripe blackberries with a hint of cigar box.

Oh man what a treat. Not much on the nose, but the wine was absolutely beautiful. Dark fruit, medium body, tons of minerals. Tannins fully resolved. Every so slightly over on the minerals or would have gone all the way. This one knocked on the door for sure.
