Robert Parker 91
A fantastic lifted nose of ripe berried fruit with a touch of burnt toast. The palate does not quite match the nose, a bit disjointed at the moment but there is certainly good concentration and a suave quality. This may improve over the next year to show its true potential. Tasted January 2004.
Very deep crimson. Rich and full and sumptuous. Wonderfully sumptuous. Great texture and stuffing. Great stuff!
Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025
