Good medium red-ruby color. Less expressive but lively aromas of blue fruits and brown spices plus a hint of confiture Not as ripe or fleshy as the 96 but the dark berry and licorice flavors are currently rather tightly wrapped and unforthcoming. Finishes with substantial dusty (oak?) tannins that betray a slight astringency. Perhaps still in shock from the bottling. Stephen Tanzers IWC.


Winemaker's Notes:

Open bouquet of very ripe fruit with notes of leather. Very supple on the palate; the tannins have developed very nicely. Worth drinking now.
