Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes – 17.0

Complex aromas – hints of undergrowth, pencil lead, red fruit beginning the process of sweet vinous decay. Fine but leathery tannins, more mineral on the palate. Fragrant and fresh with subtle persistence. (JH) [05/05/2011]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025

Robert Parker – 95

One can’t say enough about this winery, which may still fly under the radar of most consumers. The fully mature 2000 displays gorgeous aromas of camphor, lead pencil shavings, unsmoked tobacco, plums, and black currants. With full body, a velvety texture, and beautiful weight, richness, and length, this superb wine should evolve, possibly improve for another 15 years. It’s a beauty! [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 29/06/2010]

Vinous – 90+

Good full ruby. Roasted red and black fruits, smoke and licorice on the nose. Powerful, even a bit aggressive, with less sweetness and subtlety than the subsequent vintages. Finishes with big, chewy, ripe tannins and lingering notes of tobacco and leather. Very Graves in style. This appears to be in the process of shutting down in the bottle. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/2003]
