The 1997 vintage of this wine was ranked #6 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2000
A deep ruby core. Gorgeous ripe raspberry and currant with soft oak notes of vanilla. A touch of roast coffee adds to the dazzling range of aromas. On the palate, layers of clean, direct fruit show themselves varingly with each sip as flavors of black currant and brown spice intensifies. The crisp, yet surprisingly grippy mid-palate shows promise of a long future in cellar.
Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot
I really like the balance and subtle fruit in this red with currants, spices and light coffee aromas and flavors. Silky textured finish. Hazelnut and fruit on the finish. Harmonious wine. Made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Best in 2014.
