High-toned aromas of carob, mint and oak, plus a liqueur-like red berry quality. Ripe-verging-on-overripe, with almost exotically sweet fruit flavors and a strong oakiness. Reminded me of a ripe-year Chateauneuf du Pape. Finishes with substantial, somewhat tough tannins.

The 1997 Carobric, also tasted from magnum, presents a more evolved set of flavors including tobacco, earthiness and over-ripe, cooked fruit. Though it shows excellent length it is the wine that most clearly reflects the adverse conditions of the hot vintage in its wilted, somewhat tired quality.

Dark ruby red color. Complex aromas of crushed berry, rose bush and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and powerful, rich fruit, with a fresh herb and mushroom undertone. Very stylish and soulful. Just starting to come around. Give it a little more time.
