    (1998 Vintage) Deep red. Powerful yet suave aromas of cherry preserves, molasses, roasted coffee and spicy oak. Lush and broad, with a deep cherry flavor complicated by musky underbrush and white pepper. Tannins are barely felt on the long, spicy finish, which shows a hint of spicecake. Delicious and ready to drink.
