" The wine opens to an inky dark appearance with dried blackberry and plum and plenty of spice and smoke to flesh it out. Like other Bolgheri wines from this vintage, the tannins (both the fruit and the oak tannins, but mostly the fruit) are very powerful and tight. They add a point of stemmy bitterness to the close that makes me enjoy this vintage less than some of the others I have tasted. "
