Lovely deep purple, almost black color. Still a little unevolved, this medium-bodied wine has nice aromas and flavors of cassis, black raspberries, green peppercorns, and herbs. Probably a year or so from mellowing out, this wine still showed a bit of roughness in the mouth and the finish. But an excellent buy that's only going to get better. - HK 2001-04-04
