Saturated medium ruby. Cassis, blueberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and minerals on the nose, plus a whiff of creosote. Juicy, savory and tactile but very backward, showing no easy sweetness to its black fruit and mineral flavors. This is even less giving today than the Napa Valley bottling. Today the wine's powerful structure gives the finish a dry edge, but it appears to have the extract and intensity to reward extended cellaring.Author: Stephen Tanzer
