Scores and tasting notes
This dark-colored wine is a cut above. Profound aromas of intensely sweet cherries, raspberries, stones, and earth give way to a full-bodied, extremely feminine, and massively ripe and vibrant core of roses, cherries, and candied blueberries. This silky-textured, hedonistic (yet wonderfully structured), and focused wine ends on an incredibly long and detailed finish. Projected maturity: 2004-2010+. Importers: Martine's Wines, Inc., San Rafael, CA; tel (415) 485-1800, and Paterno Imports, Chicago, IL; tel (847) 604-8900.
