TASTING NOTES

"Pretty aromas of grapes, minerals, blackberries and cherries. Full-bodied, with a fantastic core of raspberry fruit and solid, silky tannins. Give it time to still come together. Poggio Antico is really excellent in 1998. Not sure if I like this better or the other bottling. Best after 2005. 875 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Red-ruby. Expressive nose combines red berry liqueur, musky gunflint, Valrhona chocolate, mocha and smoky oak. Dense, sappy and juicy, with subtly complex hints of cherry, smoke, flowers and gunflint. Conveys a strong impression of extract and soil character. Finishes with nicely buffered, ripe tannins and excellent length. Like the basic bottling, this promises a decade or more of development in bottle and may ultimately merit an outstanding rating."
