This is a step up (of course) from the red label, which is good too. The reserve has no after taste, it's smooth from start to finish. I enjoy this brand, and when there is a good group of friends around, the reserve is always on the table.
a thoroughly enjoyable vintage, especially the long finish. Best served slightly chilled - approximately 58 degrees. Thi wine must breathe first - decant and let stand 30-35 minutes to allow it to open.
Lacking in fruit and spunk. A bit over the hill.
