Well-balanced wine still showing some tannin. Claret-like feel to it. Earthy nose with prunes and licorice components. Softer in the mouth than the nose suggests, and fruitier, with fairly full cherry and berry flavors. But overall the wine seemed a bit tired and that hurt its score. - WB Team 2002-03-27
