What a model of consistency this wine is! This formidable wine was still fairly unevolved, still a little dusty and tannnic, but there was no missing the density and depth waiting to explode. Lurking under the surface were meaty fruit flavors of prunes, licorice, and deep dark plums. Can't wait to try this again in a year or two. - WB Exec Team 2004-03-20
