($59) Saturated medium ruby. Cassis, redcurrant, licorice and oak on the nose. Bright, vibrant and tightly wound, with intense, very primary dark berry and floral flavors and a distinctly peppery nuance. A bit youthfully hard-edged but there's also good sweetness and attractive florality at the core. Seems brighter and more primary than the '97 normale, if not as rich and ripe. Built to age.Author: Stephen Tanzer
