Luckily the wine aged better than the label. It’s still fantastic! Still tons of black fruit, mild tannins, balanced acidity and a great earthy nose. We served this wine at our wedding and was a great memory to toast to tonight.

Deeply concentrated with the telltale blackberry of the Oakville District. Drinks beautifully now and will last a decade.

Dark fruit, blackberry, very silky and great finish. This wine is solid and over delivers for the price.

Solid wine with nice fruit. Blackberry. Nice suave finish- not overpowering.

Pleasant wine, dark berry fruit with well integrated aromatics damp forest and lavender. Medium plus body, medium minus acid... Higher than expected, nice. Tannins medium plus with chalky texture. Medium length of dark chocolate and cherries.

Bought this one in 2001, and once again it was worth it. Full flavor and very smooth, loved the black cherry and currant flavor.
