Wine Spectator Weekly, August 15, 2002
Wonderful fruit purity, with ripe, rich plum and black currant flavors at the center, wrapped tightly by mouthcoating tannins and offering hints of anise, sage and blackberry. has tannins to shed, but dryness on the finish is a concern, too. Drink now through 2008. -- J.L.
