Flavorful, serious red that developed nicely over the course of the tasting. Elegant and balanced, this wine displays a complex mix of blueberry and strawberry, cassis, milk chocolate, and roast beef. Velvety texture with an overall feel somewhat like a good Pomerol. The finish struck us as not especially long at this point, costing it a point or two in the ranking. - WB team 2003-08-13
