($15) Saturated bright medium ruby. Tarry cassis, crushed black cherry, violet and spice cake on the primary nose. Lush, smooth and a bit confiture, but not yet especially complex. Still a bit monolithic, in the style of many '99s from this appellation. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins. This was bottled a month prior to my visit.Author: Stephen Tanzer
