    (1997 Vintage) Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 84, May/June 1999 Fresh deep ruby. Spicy, sappy aromas of strawberry and cherry jam, chocolate and black pepper. Lush but firm in the mouth, with intensely spicy berry flavors sharpened by sound acids. Finishes very long, vibrant and firm.
