A continuous award-winning wine, it is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux in its supple textureand complexity. Collectors will find this medium-bodied, dark ruby wine elegant and graceful with a luscious bouquet of concentrated black fruits. Layers of briar, mulberry, cranberry, cassis, and cinnamon are wrapped in spice, leather, hints of tobacco, and bittersweet cocoa. The 1997 Andrus Reserve is well balanced with firm structure and depth. Cellaring for ten years or more will enhance elegance and character.
