Good vintage here, good vintage there. Blah, blah, blah! All very well and good, but how did it taste? Well, that depends on who was drinking it. Vinomaker really liked it. Me? Less so. I just couldn't get past the oak, lots and lots of the stuff. Nice body and texture, but this wine is not aging very well. In my estimation, this wine was overly oaked and out of balance back in 1997 and it's not like it's going to balance itself anytime soon: it's teetering on the edge.
