Description

The 1997 Sena has a more inviting bouquet than the 1996, and is endowed with more fruit concentration with baked black cherries, strawberry, orange peel and dried tobacco that attest to a warmer vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with dry, dusty tannins. There is plenty of mocha tinged black fruit with a crisp acidic bite on the finish, although it does not have great length or authority. The nose is showing better than the palate here. Drink now-2017. 

Sena is the peripatetic wine that goes around the world challenging and, let it be said, often defeating First Growths in blind tastings. I will not enter into a discussion about that here, although it must be said that Sena is an impressive wine. Tasting through this mini-vertical from almost the first vintage, I did find a distinct improvement from 2007 onwards. While I understand that older vintages have their share of plaudits, I discerned more complexity and vitality as well as finer integration of oak on newer vintages, as if more thought had gone into the wines. The result can be seen in the wines themselves, in particular the outstanding 2010. RATED 89 Parker
