Winemaker's Notes

(From 1996 Vintage) This impressive wine is a classic. Although backward, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant fruit intertwined with spicy oak and truffle-like scents. The wine is brilliantly made, full-bodied, and tightly-structured with plenty of muscle and outstanding concentration and purity.

    Martin says that it "corks a little", Kyrian says that we should "let it breathe longer."
