Tasting Notes:

Wine Advocate

 It demonstrated more fruit on the nose when compared directly from vintages originating in the early 1990s. It is not the most complex bouquet, yet it remains fresh and lively, with secondary aromas of cured Italian meats, melted tar and a touch of cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and well-judged acidity. (NM)  (3/2017)

Int’l Wine Cellar

 Good red-ruby color. Ripe, fairly deep aromas of currant, raspberry, smoke, leather, earth and nutty oak. Lush texture given shape by ripe acids. Faint note of black olive. Quite aromatic in the mouth. Finishes juicy, fresh and persistent. Very good for the vintage. (ST)  (5/2000)

Wine Spectator

 Very pretty red with berry, cherry character. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a soft tannin structure. Well done and delicious. (JS)  (1/2000)
