Parker, Jr. (39) The dark plum/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a bouquet of pure black currants, subtle wood, earth, and mineral scents. A rich, concentrated palate, plush texture, layered flavors, and outstanding purity give this wine a symmetrical, harmonious feel. The well-integrated acidity and tannin result in a seamless effort that is just short of being outstanding. Anticipated maturity: now-2012.
