Similar to the outstanding '97 but a little lighter and, at least at this stage, without the length, complexity, and overall bite of that wine. Probably identical grape content to the '97, but struck us as softer and more Grenache-based. Nice berry/flower perfume, with flavors of dark berries. Terrific buy. - WB Team 2002-06-14
