Scores and tasting notes
Still young and vibrant, with a deep ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of black currants intermixed with earth and some vanilla, this medium-bodied wine is very graceful, stylish, and classic, with relatively high tannin, a cooler-climate flavor profile, and long, moderately tannic finish. Still youthful and vigorous, this wine should evolve effortlessly for at least another 10-15 years. Anticipated maturity: Now-2016. Last tasted, 4/02.
