This unusual wine seems dominated by earthy, roasted-meat like notes, with only a touch of dark fruit in the background. OK Rhone-style wine and the price is right, but it doesn't hold a candle to the outstanding "La Quintessence" made by the same winery. The wine actually seemed a little more fruity and open the second day after opening, so it may actually improve with another year or two in the bottle. - HK 2002-10-27
