International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Bright ruby. Oaky aromas of black fruits, dark chocolate and mint. Very ripe, thick and rich; lovely sweetness and breadth of texture. Grew lusher as it opened in the glass. Enticing flavor of black raspberry. Finishes very long, with big, ripe tannins. A lovely example of the vintage.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 132

The dense ruby/purple-colored 1997 Profile Proprietary Red Wine offers a ripe, sweet nose of licorice, blackberry, cassis, and toast. Medium to full-bodied, with moderately high tannin, abundant new oak, and a long, concentrated finish, it will be at its peak between 2002-2014.

Massive, with wonderful richness, depth and concentration, this Cabernet blend has layers of complex currant, black cherry, plum, vanilla and blackberry and a long, detailed, firmly tannic finish. 5,200 cases made.

Sorry to see my last of these go, but it was delicious. Firing on all cylinders in a fruit bomb extravaganza! I wish I had the patience to keep my others this long.
