Scores and tasting notes
This wine has lost some of its fat, opulent fleshiness, with the tannins showing a bit more toughness than several years ago. The wine is fully mature, not likely to get better, and probably best drunk up over the next 5-6 years. The color is showing some amber at the edge, and the wine still has beautiful ripeness, richness, and a very sweet, vanillin-infused, black cherry and berry character. The wine is medium-bodied, but the finish is just a bit shorter than it was several years ago. Anticipated maturity: Now-2006. Last tasted, 12/02.
