Tasting note: Heavy wood spice presently dominates the fruit and leads to round, sexy, seductive, earthy, nicely rich and detailed flavors of excellent intensity and fine length. As of yet, this has developed no nuance at all and it's frankly a bit one-dimensional and it will be interesting to see if the wine can successfully integrate this much oak. To be sure, there is good underlying material and certainly a fine track record behind the wine plus a demonstrated ability to age even in less than stellar vintages but this is presently displaying more wood than I personally can sign up for. 91 points -Burghound April 2002

Good full red. Aromatic nose combines redcurrant, iron and minerals. The sweetest and most expansive of the trio of 1999s I sampled, with firm acids giving shape to the flavors. Here the broad tannins hit the palate rather late, and there plenty of stuffing to support them. 90 points
