Saturated ruby-red. Expressive, floral aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, toffee, licorice and chocolate; suggests an almost roasted ripeness. Chocolatey and very dense in the mouth; rather tightly wrapped today but still much broader than the '97. Finishes very long, with substantial tongue-coating tannins. Powerful and impressive for the vintage.

barely held it's own amongst thirty 1996's; some classic tobacco and cedar, a bit of tar on the palate along with the medium depth of fruit. Enjoyable but slightly short, wouldn't wait long.
