International Wine CellarBright ruby-red. Inexpressive nose hints at cinnamon. Sweet, thick and youthfully clenched; ripe hint of chocolate. A seriously structured, adult style of cabernet, most impressive today on the peacock tail of a finish. Perhaps not as solidly built as the '96 but this should age extremely well.
