Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 100
($90) Saturated deep ruby. Cassis, leather and game on the roasted nose. A powerful wine with terrific thrust; sweet but tight, with somewhat grapey black fruit, floral and leather flavors. Pure, long and subtle on the back, with very even tannins. But conveys more Hermitage power and primary dark fruits than Cote-Rotie verve.

Parker was nuts when he rated this wine. I have enjoyed the 88 and 91 more in the past then this vintage. Don't touch a bottle for at least another five years.
