(1998 Vintage) Bright cherry red in color, with an open nose of ripe fruit and a hint of oak and spice. The palate is warm and rounded, with a long complex finish. Recommended for all red meats and cured ham, as well as grilled fish and dishes with rich sauces. Will continue to improve in bottle for the next 5 - 10 years.
