The bouquet fills the room with beautiful fruits and perfume. The smooth flavors reinforce the bouquet with red fruits and roses. Soooo elegant, complex, and delicious.The flavors are still very fruit and spice driven; very youthful and fresh.

90 points, Connoisseurs’ Guide (April 2000): “Nicely focused aromas of ripe cherries with hints of currant and sweet oak are paralleled in medium-intensity flavors that are roughed up only a little by the wine’s moderate tannins."

4 out of 5 stars, Wine Today, New York Times (July 18, 2000): “Classic Cabernet made without compromise. Medium, full-bodied, complex, dry, balanced acidity, integrated oak, modest tannins. Aromas of cassis, mineral, mushroom and smoke. Flavors of black cherry, black olive, cassis and mushroom. Classic, plush, ripe, showy, supple.”
