On the nose the blackberry and black cherry notes we enjoyed ten years ago are still intact. The wine has also taken on a beautiful secondary aroma profile of lightly toasted oak, pencil lead and olive tapenade. On the palate, the rich and chewy tannins we experienced in its youth have rounded out on the edges. Its general characteristics of dark rich fruit, full body and long finish are still fully intact.

91 points, Wine Spectator (October 31, 2000): “Tight, with concentrated plum, chocolate, blackberry and toasty oak
notes and hefty tannins that carry through to a flavorful finish.”

This wine can easily hold for another 8 years.  Note: Decant one hour prior to serving.
