A major disappointment. Simple, varietally correct aromas and flavors, but no grip, depth or complexity, and with a short and somewhat tannic and bitter finish. The wine is young and may improve, but at this point holds very little interest and is insanely overpriced for its quality. We're sure it will be called "elegant," but there's a big difference between "elegant" and "insipid." Are we missing something here?? - WB Team 2000-12-01
