Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Licorice and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Balanced and pretty, with lovely finesse.

ST 90

Very dark ruby-red. Spiced blackcurrant, coffee and ink on the nose, with a light dusting of cracked black pepper. Shows good texture and very good sweetness to its dark fruit, coffee and licorice flavors. Finishes smooth and long, but with mounting tannins and bit of alcoholic warmth. A very-well made wine that deserves an outstanding score, but I miss the penetratingly pure quality and red fruit aromas and flavors of past great vintages of this wine, such as the 1988 and 1990.
