I believe this was available only at the winery.
Dark in color with only slight bricking at the edge. The aromas burst from the bottle on opening with strong dark fruits and currant.
This has a wonderful, mouth-coating feel to it with good depth. Currant, dark cherry, ainse, and earth flavors on a still firm frame. Better the second day.
I personally think this has a longer life ahead than the '97 Georges vineyard. Hold for at least two more years if you have some. 92 pts and a good qpr at the $24 I paid. Recent releases haven't been as good IMO.
