Parker 92 Punkte
The 1997 Fratta is, as one might reasonably expect, the most forward of these wines. Though quite beautiful, the wine is fairly advanced in its soft dark fruit, earthiness and beef bouillon. It is a pretty, mature wine perfect for near-term enjoyment. The 1997 vintage was blended by Paul Pontallier of Chateau Margaux. The blend consists of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot.
