Tasted blind, this wine had a deep red/purple center with light red/clear rims. The high- intensity nose of black cherries, cola, and soil was attractive.
In the mouth this wine was medium bodied with great richness. It had light rounded tannin and nice balance. This wine avoided the typical hyper-intensity of most 1993s. However, like many of them, my guess is that this wine will still benefit from 5+ years in the cellar.
