Outer quote mark Elegant and refined, with a smooth texture and supple, well-integrated tannins. An intense core of currant, blackberry and herb-vanilla scented oak adds a nice flavor and textural dimension. Flavors linger and gain complexity on the finish. Inner quote mark (10/2002)
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 75% humidity since purchase.
