December 200089-91 Full deep ruby. Black raspberry, violet, mint, shoe polish and mineral aromas complicated by hints of game, smoke and herbs. Fat and rich, but can't match the '97 Barolos for sheer grip. And comes across as a bit less sweet-a bit greener-than the '98 and '99 versions of Darmagi. Seems slightly pinched on the back; perhaps it in an awkward stage today.
June 200190 There are 1,000 cases of the exceptional, black/purple-colored 1997 Darmagi Cabernet Sauvignon (3-4% Cabernet Franc was added to the blend). With abundant quantities of smoky, concentrated fruit as well as tannin, the vintage's low acid, thick, glycerin-imbued character, and a layered, full-bodied finish, it should develop nicely for two decades.
