TASTING NOTES

Beautifully crafted, with wonderful aromas of roasted meat, chestnuts, berries and cedar. Full-bodied, round, extremely polished. Long, flavorful finish. 

J.S., Wine Spectator. 

Displays notable vibrancy and freshness in both its aromas and flavors, with layers of sweet dark fruit, minerals and earthiness that are just starting to show some tertiary nuances. It offers notable length, lively acidity and plenty of fruit to drink well for at least another decade. 

A.G., Wine Advocate.

Deep red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at dark berries, licorice and mint. Primary and vibrant in the mouth, with a perfumed floral quality, but a bit aggressive today, and not showing the richness of Scavino vineyard-designated '96s. Finishes slightly minty and firmly tannic.
