How do you top this wine! When I tasted this stunning wine in November, 1997, I was blown away by its density of hugely-ripe fruit and yet it took a few minutes of tasting for me to be convinced that its powerful oak flavors and boat-loads of tannin would not present a problem. When I re-tasted it at the end of January, the oak and tannins were substantially more integrated. This dark-ruby/purple-colored blockbuster reveals intense aromas of cassis, blackberries, Asian spices, hoisin sauce, earth, and toasty oak. Its awesome full-bodied, velvety-textured, and mouth-coating personality is so densely packed with super-ripe black fruits that a knife and fork seem required to effectively taste it. This wine's power, depth, concentration, and immense length are given glorious focus by its fresh acidity. Wow! Projected maturity: 2004-2012+. Aug 1998, www.robertparker.com
