    A very pretty wine, with delicate aromas of spices, flowers and very ripe fruit. Comes across as simple compared to the other wines. Remains very backward and austere for the vintage.

    Deep red. Superripe but reticent aromas of redcurrant, gunflint, mocha and humus. Very sweet, full and dense but very closed today. Lovely insinuating vinosity. Quite classic, especially in light of the extreme ripeness of the '97 vintage. Offers more stuffing and dimension than La Serra. Finishes very long and subtle, with the thoroughly buffered but substantial tannins hitting the palate quite late.

    Medium ruby red color. Aromas of black cherry and cloves. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, rich finish. Almost decadent. Turns a little meaty, with mushroom. Just coming around.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Drink now. 2,275 cases made.

    Lovely dried fruit and flower characteristics. Very dry. A bit of mushroomy funk as well.

    Some bottle variation here - some show advanced aging, others on the young side.

    Still drinking closed. Needs decanting. Opens after 30 min. Bit tight. Color is starting to brick. Nice drinking
