    Ruby-red, not quite as deep as the '96. Exotic, sweet aromas of currant, lead pencil, spice and woodsmoke. A huge wine that conveys a sense of sheer power, but not quite as delineated or stylish as the '96. This really explodes on the aftertaste, but the '96 is more subtle. Clearly first-growth size, but less fine than the '96.
