    (From 2002 Vintage) There are justifiable arguments that this big-bodied wine is a little too tough and a little too hot to be considered a complete success, but its fruity depth and concentration win the day. It is fleshy to start and increasingly tannic as it crosses the palate, but its themes of cassis stay the course and are apparent all the way through. Be in no hurry to drink it, and set it aside for five or six years.
