Not quite as great as the 100-point 94 but really superb. Black color with intense aromas of mineral blueberries and blackberries. Full-bodied and very sweet with layers of big velvety tannins and a long long finish. Truly impressive. Best after 2009. 250 cases made. JS Wine Spectator.

The 1997 Nacional is a legend from this pre-phylloxera vineyard. The color is a saturated black/purple. The nose reveals floral scents intermixed with coffee blackberries tar cassis licorice and chocolate. Extremely full-bodied but less massive and seamless this spectacular Nacional will reach its plateau of maturity quickly where it will remain for 2-3 decades. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2040.
