Red-ruby. Blackberry, cherry, licorice, lead pencil and a flinty nuance on the nose. Bright and delineated, with good sweetness and thrust for a '98. Distinctive cigar box and tobacco flavors. Finishes firmly tannic, with persistent flavors of iron, tobacco and underbrush.

Nose of cassis, cherry and smoke. Sweet soft tannins and Blueberry fruit, chocolate with hint of tobacco on the palate. Medium finish
Still has life left.

Medium body at best. Fruit appears to be fading compared to the year previous. Still a strong cherry component with light cedar. Might be at the end of it's life.
