A flashy, opulent Cabernet. This wine is rich, full-bodied, and loaded with black chocolate, currants and cherry fruit. Notes of baking spices and tobacco add character to the finish. The rich, ripe tannins add incredible texture and depth.
If you like a big, bold cabernet then this is it. It was a freight train of heaviness all across your pallet. Luckily this is the way i like my cabs.
ok, not as good as Camus special reserve... needs to be decanted
Amazing full boy, dark chocolate with black cherry finish.
rich fruit with prune overtones and soft tannins.

International Wine Cellar(1998 Vintage) Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 99, November/December 2001. ($136) Deep ruby-red. Cassis, peat, licorice, menthol and a whiff of green pepper on the nose. A juicy wine with good texture and extract, but not yet showing a lot of flavor development or personality. Finishes with firm, slightly dry tannins and licorice and herbal notes.
