Rancho Galante 1997
Another stunning wine from an exceptional vintage. The color of this wine is deep garnet with a hint of crimson on the edges. the nose is quite prominent with ripe raspberry and cola. There is an explosive burst of fresh, slightly tart berry on the mouth with toasted vanilla that lingers beautifully throughout the palate. This wine will continue to age gracefully over the next 5 or more years but it is exceptional now.
