...a light raspberry and blackberry jam character combined with a vanilla latte. Full bodied and juicy, with broader shoulders and round tannins. This is powerful and rich, with loads of ripe tannins and fruit. This is all about layers.
...Vibrant aromas of deep black raspberry, licorice and violet...dense, deep and very primary...superb persistence and finishing perfume suggest it will rank among the best vintages of this bottling...
...notes of cassis, blueberries and acacia flowers...medium-bodied...reserved and restrained, but it has put on a little weight, revealing sweet tannin as well as a velvety texture. This offering should drink nicely for 12-15 years.
Very perfumed and subtle. Gentle in texture. Very fresh, very persistent with a finish that was defiantly dry rather than sweet...Impressive and distinctive.
