    1lbsl, 1bsl, 2nl
    Magnum (2)


    "Medium ruby color that is no longer as deep as the '99. Fresh and still entirely primary, elegantly perfumed violet and black fruit aromas introduce round, sweet, brilliantly delineated middle weight flavors of considerable breed and class and delivers a racy, long, stunningly pure finish. The basic character here is interesting as the nose is wonderfully expressive yet the flavors, and especially the finish, is somewhat somber and reserved. Still, there is excellent potential though this will clearly require another 6 to 8 years to really begin drinking well." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound #14, Apr. 2004)
