    (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.
