International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Bright ruby-red. Quintessential Napa Valley aromas of cassis, tar, menthol, dried herbs, chocolate and Rutherford dust. Rather grapey flavors of cassis and spicy, cedary oak, complicated by an herbal note. Finishes rather tannic and a bit tough. Does this have enough flesh for its structure?

Over the hill. Still had some fruit but very musky and a bit flat.

Still has lively acidity. Good tannins, long finish.

A true Bordelais style wine. Still great fruit with softened yet firm Tannins. Some spice...all around would swear its a 1st Growth Premier Cru.

The wine has held up well. Slightly lighter in body and the color was pretty good although a tinge of brown on the rim. A flavor of Rutherford dust along with light berry flavors and oak. Real easy drink - soft and apprachable right away.
