This dark-colored wine displays a magnificently elegant nose of cassis, black cherries, and roses. This is an austere yet expansive, complex, medium-to-full-bodied, ripe and masculine wine. It is dense and powerful yet maintains a refined combination of muscle and class. Its tightly wound core offers red and black currants, cherries, minerals, and toasted oak flavors, all of which linger in its admirably focused and firm finish. Projected maturity: 2003-2012. Importer: Wilson-Daniels, St. Helena, CA; tel. (707) 963-9661.
