Wine EnthusiastLovely mixed berries-black, red and blue-cedar shadings, and vanilla mark the nose of this elegant, finely crafted wine. Similar flavors prevail on the palate, with sophisticated licorice and pencil-lead accents. Balanced and graceful, it finishes dry and even, offering dried fruit and mineral notes. Complex and excellent already, but hold until 2004.

Wine SpectatorElegant and complex, with supple tannins, herb, currant and berry flavors, picking up cedar and sage notes. Drink now through 2008.
