International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 93

Medium ruby. Complex, individual nose combines black raspberry, cassis, blood orange, cocoa powder, bitter chocolate, smoke and earth. Intensely flavored, fresh and sharply delineated, with notes of cassis, blackberry, dark chocolate and meat, and strong oakiness. Leaner than the '96 at a similar stage, but grew a bit denser and sweeter with aeration. Finishes rather oaky, with firm tannins and very good length. Conveys a strong impression of terroir, but I don't yet find the texture or depth of the best vintages of Screaming Eagle.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 126

It doesn't get any better than 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon, a perfect wine. Representing the essence of cassis liqueur intermixed with blackberries, minerals, licorice, and toast, this full-bodied, multi-dimensional classic is fabulous, with extraordinary purity, symmetry, and a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. It has the overall equilibrium to evolve for nearly two decades, but it will be hard to resist upon release.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Fantastic aromas of crushed berries and ripe currants with hints of vanilla and coconut. Full-bodied, with velvety and rich tannins and a long, superripe fruit aftertaste. Goes on and on. Very jammy and exciting but well-defined and structured.
