IWC
91(+?)

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Good full ruby-red. Superripe aromas of black raspberry, coffee, mint and oak, plus an exotic smoky note of torrefaction. Less complex than the '98 but very concentrated, with surprising acidity giving the wine lovely vinosity. Strong note of dark chocolate in the mouth. Finishes long and juicy, with building tannins.

Needed 1.5 hours to open up, but then hit its stride. Not a super long finish nor huge nuances, but a good wine nonetheless.

Deep black cherry red with lots of thin legs showing trace amounts of color. A still developing bouquet of smoky plum, black cherry, earth, beginning signs of the telltale tar and roses, slight mint, sandalwood, leather, and clay. Relatively low acidity with still firm tannin (not objectionably so but more rustic in nature than other top flight GAJA wines). Fine levels of concentration. Needs another seven years and will last for a decade thereafter.
