Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

"This wine may deserve an outstanding rating, yet the lavish oak and international style are controversial. Nevertheless, it is a hedonistic, dark ruby/purple-colored, exotic, ostentatious 1997 with superb fruit and concentration. Enjoy it over the next decade. This tiny (700-750 cases), luxury cuvee is produced from a 6.2-acre parcel of 35-year old Merlot vines. April, 2000." -Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Bright ruby. Perfumed black cherry and dark chocolate nose. Sappy cherry flavor is currently a bit overshadowed by new oak; quite lively in the mouth but could use a bit more pliancy. Finishes quite firm, with very good length and some obvious wood tannins.  May, 1999." -Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

"Lots of ripe fruit for the vintage, with plum, tobacco and toasted oak character. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a long finish. A tad too much wood, but a beautiful wine overall.  January, 2000." -Wine Spectator
