98 Pierro, Margaret River Red Table Wine

There aren't too many Bordeaux blends that ever feel this complete. To say the least, this '98 Pierro (cab, cab franc, merlot, petit verdot) is peaking right now. Its dense, velvety weight is a joy to chew on and suckle. The flavors are ripe and mature, boldly blackberried and lingeringly leathery. The bitter chocolate/sticky cassis finish complements the earthy, fruit compote aroma. The tannins are smooth and sweet, with a slight grip at the end like a husband's hand on his wife's shoulder as she walks out the door.
