1997 Chateau Petrus

Medium ruby core with a pink rim. The nose is incredibly heady and complex. Layers of cassis liqueur, dark chocolate-covered ripe cherries, currants, a subtle whiff of catmint (nepeta), briar and very light tomato leaf, which is not herbaceous or vegetal. The palate is medium bodied and soft with supple texture and layers of flavor. Flavors of cassis, currant, dark chocolate and cedar are delivered with medium(+) acidity and vibrant, fine-grained tannins. Plenty of development ahead.
