予想される飲み頃：2003 - 2009
Deep ruby with some purple nuances, this wine offers up relatively light, somewhat muted notes of cassis, licorice, and new oak. In the mouth, the wine is medium-bodied, soft, fully mature, with surprising elegance and purity. The finish is a bit short, but nevertheless, this is another very impressive wine from a vintage that requires consumption over the next 4-5 years. Anticipated maturity: Now-2009. Last tasted, 10/02.
