(From 1997 Vintage) Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2002 Intense ruby red, lighter around the edges with age. The nose is spicy with hints of eucalyptus. Big and round with excellent structure from balanced tannins. Long and spicy finish. A powerful wine. Recommended with roasted and grilled meats, particularly roasted lamb flavored with herbs.
