Vinous

Medium-full ruby-violet. Quite lush aromas: cherry, herbs, vanillin oak. Medium body. Good sweetness on the palate, with correct, balanced, supple fruit flavors; lively but not too acidic. Then rather soft on the finish. Very drinkable and agreeable, and nicely vinified for the year. *+ JB (9/1998)

Wine Spectator

Good blackberry and cherry character, but a slightly austere, rather dry finish. Still, there's good ripe fruit to it. Medium-bodied.  JS (12/1998)
