Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) Deep red-ruby. Enveloping aromas of plum, animal fur and smoked meat. Fat, plump and ripe but dry; a very round, rich wine with inviting flavors of plum, graphite and chocolatey oak. Uncompromisingly dry on the back, but with very sweet, fine tannins.

    (2001 Vintage) "Good deep red-ruby. Sappy, primary black fruit and mineral aromas, with hints of violet and licorice. Lush, opulent and suave, but with noteworthy energy in the mouth, thanks to brisk, harmonious acidity. Very long and firm on the back end, with the wine's tannins currently covered by sappy fruit."
