Wine AdvocateA classy, complex bouquet of lead pencil, mineral, earth, cassis, and flowers jumps from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored 1997. Evolved and elegant, with noticeable tannin, it exhibits both breed and class as well as moderate weight, excellent depth, purity, and symmetry. Enjoy it now and over the next 10-12 years ... at the minimum.

Wine SpectatorAttractive perfumes of berries and cherries. Light- to medium-bodied, with fresh fruit and a short finish.
