Consistent notes. Med.-dark ruby to mahogany color; full nose of black fruit, haberdashery, cigar box, & spice; similar flavors with additional notes of camphor, raspberries and a hint of mushrooms; very good concentration, complexity, and balance; good acid level gives vibrancy; soft integrated tannins; lovely long finish. An excellent Cote Rotie that is now fully mature but will hold for several years.

95

This has evolved beautifully in bottle and continues to shine. Rich golden color. Lovely, unctuous, rich, intense (but not overly so), slightly sweet; well balanced; good w/food (esp. foie); nectar of apricots and tropical fruit; delicious. Not quite as intense and complex as the ZH '98 'Clos Windsbuhl' but close and very delicious and of V.T. quality. Will last for several more years

rdalehite 97

A spectacular wine from Andy Erickson and team. Wow! Initial nose was a blowout of blueberries and graphite. Layers upon layers in the bouquet just kept coming. Notes of plum and dark fruit that continued to evolve over the next 1.5 hours into one of the more spectacular wines I've had in some time. More please!

Finally after 4 bottle this is in the #zone! Medium bodied with pops of cherry, licorice and currants. A wonderful texture coats the palate with fresh and fine medium grain tannin. Visit my website: The Wine Forum
