1997 DRC La Tache - Wine Advocate #125 - Oct 1999: Dark-colored, the aromatically tight 1997 La Tache reveals Asian spices, pepper, cherries and black currants. This is a velvety-textured, expansive, and massively ripe wine boasting flavors reminiscent of licorice and blackberry jam. It has superb depth of fruit (particularly for this sometimes "simple" vintage), medium-to-full body, and admirable length to its supple finish. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2012.
