Initial impression was fairly light and uncomplicated, but blossomed after being open for half an hour into a much more serious and interesting wine. Nicely integrated with kirsch and chocolate flavors, a slight Cabernet-like weediness, and an elusive touch of violets in the nose. Medium body, nice though not long finish. Not particularly complex, but an excellent food wine and a good buy (at least when it was released). - HK 2000-09-06
