If this wine lived up to its nose, it would be excellent. The nose was assertive, with strong raspberry and plum fruit. But disappointing in the mouth, with a high-acid and somewhat sweet/medicinal feel to it, and a clipped finish. Recently purchased by Turley Wine Cellars, it will be interesting to see what this wine is like in the future. Prediction: the price will go up. - WB Team 2001-02-21
