Wine Details

Wine Description

On the nose this wine exhibits blackberry jam, vanilla, andallspice leap out of the glass yet gracefully yield to notes of dried plum, coee bean, and perfume with some patience. Deceptively soft up front, with fresh strawberry and raspberry immediately apparent. These instantly give way though to density and concentration of flavor as the tannins and acidity come into focus. The finish.

    very good wine but softer when compared to Dominus 1989 and montelena 1994. wine developed nicely over the evening, picking up a bit more power and taste and time progressed,even though wine was decanted for more than 3 hours. lovely.

    vivacious nose and follow through. like a wild teacher next to a straight laced stag leap school kid. nose developed throughout the night giving hints of medicinal herbal tones.
