Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) A big, juicy red. Black, with intense aromas of black olives and sage, plus masses of fruit. Full-bodied and very velvety, with a long, long finish.

      Tasted by La Turque on 9/12/2010 & rated 95 points: This wine has come along very nicely. A glorious nose of black fruits and cedar. On the palate, the wine is complete and balanced, with fine tannins, soft acidity, lovely fruit and a very long finish. This wine will drink for another 15 years. (2197 views)

    (1997 Vintage) Deep blackish-ruby. Focused, penetrating aromas of caramel, chocolate, plum and vanilla. Round and caressing on the palate, sweet and silky; flavors of plum and raspberry. Offers lovely texture and volume on the back half. Very elegant and very long, finishing with classy tannins.
