($450) Saturated ruby-red. Superripe, deep aromas of black cherry, mocha, bitter chocolate, licorice pastille and menthol; almost porty in its ripeness. Hugely concentrated and sweet, with perfectly integrated acidity giving shape and verve to the dark berry, violet and licorice flavors. A very powerful, ageworthy wine with terrific grip and flavor definition. The serious but fine tannins arrive very late and coat the front teeth. It will be fascinating to taste this alongside the great 1998 in a decade or so.

Very dark. Roasted fruit on the nose, very kerpow and all upfront. What's upfront is pretty delicious but the finish is pretty pinched. Shame. May well come right in the end, but at the moment it dries out on the finish. This was the second favourite of the group.
