"Deep ruby, the darkest of these '96s. Cool, penetrating aromas of great purity: black raspberry, cassis, black licorice. Great thrust and verve on entry, then thick, brooding and primary, with an almost confectionary sweetness. Really three-dimensional texture. Complicating note of sweet oak. Sappy fruit saturates the entire palate. Extraordinarily persistent. Not quite as dense as the supernal '93, which I was able to retaste next to this wine, but not far off in quality. (Roty still considers '69, '85 and '93 to be his finest vintages.)" - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (Mar 1999)
