Moderately saturated red. Sauvage aromas of red fruits, smoke, coffee, game and lead pencil; reminded me more of Burgundy than Bordeaux. Mineral, lead pencil and tobacco flavors nicely framed by edgy acids. Seems less dense than the '97, but may simply be closed in on itself today. Will rely more on its acids than its tannins for longevity. (Old Bridge Cellars, Napa, CA)Author: Stephen Tanzer
