International Wine CellarRating: 88/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 93, November/December 2000 Red- and blackcurrant, blackberry, bitter chocolate and tarry oak on the nose. Strong but somewhat hard-edged dark berry flavors; fairly rich and sweet but rather closed today. Offers good texture and length and nicely ripe, dusty tannins.

User Tasting Note
wadeBig, bold, rich and polished, this is an immense and deeply concentrated Cabernet blend laden with ripe plum, currant, anise, green olive and cedar notes and finishing with gripping tannins. Best from 2002 through 2012.
