Bottled in April, 2000, this elegant, stylish, graceful wine is an attractive, dark ruby/purple-colored effort with subtle notes of sweet oak, licorice, herbs, and black fruits. While not massive, it is medium-bodied and ripe, with sweet tannin. Forty-eight percent of the production was utilized in this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018. Wine Advocate.April, 2001



Slightly herbal, with dried rosemary and mint underneath the blackberry character on the nose. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a light finish. A little diluted. Not a great Cos.¿'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 20,830 cases made. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2009
