Tasting Notes:

Gorgeous to smell with its complex aromas of blackberries, raspberries and spices. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium, fruity aftertaste. Slightly diluted midpalate. 600 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

This 1996 exhibits a dark ruby color, and a stern, unevolved, backward personality with hard tannin in the finish. Nevertheless, there is fine ripeness, good purity, and a medium-bodied, traditional style. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2014.
