Wonderful harmony. Rich and full on the palate, showing smooth tannin structure. Lovely balance, with the clean blackberry, mint, vanilla and black pepper paving the way to a velvety finish. Drink now through 2003.

Bright deep ruby. Blackberry, violet, tar, shoe polish and game on the nose, plus a light floral note; at once vibrant and surmuri. Superconcentrated, remarkably intense flavors of crystallized black cherry, cassis and licorice. An extremely persistent wine of noteworthy finesse, yet also one with a powerful structure for aging. One of the standouts of the vintage.

Silky and fruity, with a core of wet earth and spicy mocha, this full-bodied wine is both fresh and rich. Chewy and crisp on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2005.

The 1997 Hermitage Le Pavillon displays a saturated purple color, and a fabulously intense nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with floral scents, smoke, licorice, tar, and Chinese black tea aromas. There is wonderful concentration, massive body, and a monster finish in this decadently rich Hermitage. It possesses low acidity, but lots of concentration, extract, and length. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2035.

Medium ruby-red hue. Very ripe, jammy aromas have a hint of coal tar and spice. A soft attack leads to a medium body with dark fruit flavors and ripe tannins. There is more acidity that at first apparent. Drink now or later.
