|Avery Gavel rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This review is for the 2000 Vintage. When first opened, nose was heavy cassis and pencil shavings, deep red berries, black cherry, plum, vegital and a bit of ocean bon-fire. The nose followed through similar onto the palate, with good acidity and still strong tannins all in good balance. Caramel flavours developed after being open for a while and pencil shavings gave way to something more "oaky". A very MUSCULAR wine. Finish is a bit jammy but still clean.
