Tasting Notes:
rated: June 3, 2004 , K&L Wine Merchants
" 93 points Robert Parker: "The 1997 J. Daniel Cuvee is a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot (1200 cases produced). The dense ruby/purple-colored 1997 boasts a lavishly pure nose of blackberries, cassis, minerals, licorice, chocolate, and toast. It is expansive, with the vintage's tell-tale richness, sweet tannin, and outstanding ripeness and concentration. The persistent finish lasts for nearly 40 seconds. This wine possesses an openness and sweetness that gives it the impression of being ready to drink, but I suspect much more will emerge with aging. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2020. Kudos to John and Robin Lail for the efforts they have produced to date. The talented young Frenchman, Philippe Melka, is their winemaker." (01/2000) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Rich yet elegant, with layers of currant, coffee, cedar and spice, turning complex and finishing with spicy, supple tannins. Drink now through 2007. 1,200 cases made." (10/2000)"
