    In original wooden case. Good appearance. Levels into neck
    Tasting note: Bottled in April, 2000, this elegant, stylish, graceful wine is an attractive, dark ruby/purple-coloured effort with subtle notes of sweet oak, liquorice, herbs, and black fruits. While not massive, it is medium-bodied and ripe, with sweet tannin. Forty-eight percent of the production was utilized in this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 134, April 2001.
