Displaying a deep purple colour, the 1995 has a powerful nose combining touches of minerals, vanilla and black fruit with youthful aromas still very present. Rich, complex and generous on the palate, subtly refined spicy tannins come through in an excellent structure. The finish is long and fruity (2008-2020).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Totally shut down and enclosed, with an impressively saturated purple/black color and a promising but tightly strung nose of mineral, vanilla, espresso, black cherry and currant, this wine has beautiful purity, medium to full body, relatively high but sweet tannin, and a long 30-35 second finish. The wine is very firm but impressive as well as promising. Patience please! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. Last tasted, 11/02.
