Wine Description

(1996 Vintage) Ruby-red. Deep aromas of cassis, roasted plum, animal fur and graphite. Velvety in texture but with a powerful underlying structure. Very strong on the back end, which features substantial tongue-dusting tannins and subtle finishing flavor.

    (1994 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Very deep red; hefty new oak nose, opulent fruit, classic; very rich, sleek, has good concentration and depth, hefty tannins and a bit chunky, but not without elegance; good length, tannic finish.
