Scores and tasting notes
This medium-to-dark ruby/blue-colored wine was harvested at 16 hectoliters/hectare, and was produced from 80 year old vines. Its profound aromas of cassis dusted with freshly cracked black pepper give way to a dense, medium-to-full-bodied, and powerful personality. Black cherries, sauteed wild mushrooms, earth, and fresh herbs can be found in its velvety-textured flavor profile and its admirably long and supple finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2008. Importer: Vineyard Brands, Birmingham, AL; tel (205) 980-8802.
