Description: A classic RC nose that also evidences notes of caramel and brown sugar with delicious, seductive and velvety flavors that are still quite powerful and notably concentrated, all wrapped in an explosive finish of seriously admirable length. This really coats the palate with dry extract the penetrating minerality really comes through right at the end, just when you think the finish has lasted as long as it's going to. While not a truly phenomenal vintage for RC, I have always liked this wine though it has clearly peaked and even though it will certainly last for more than the next decade, the average bottle is displaying the initial signs of decline and for my tastes, I would be drinking it up over the next decade. That said, the best bottles are indeed sublime.
