    1lbsl, 1lscl, 1scl, 1ltl
    Bottle (6)
    "An opaque purple color and a closed but exciting nose of truffles, minerals, Asian spices, and fruitcake. When the wine hits the mouth with its enormous weight and extraction of flavor, one can't help but be seduced by such enormous richness and purity. Nevertheless, there is still a remarkably high level of tannin (sweet rather than astringent), a youthful, unevolved fruit character, and flavors that stain the palate. After tasting this wine, one feels like brushing one's teeth ... it is that rich." (100pts Robert Parker, Rhone Book, Jan 1997)
