International Wine CellarHealthy deep red-ruby. Aromas of raspberry, red cherry, flowers and tarry oak. Juicy, minerally and firm, with very good palate coverage but no undue weight. The floral element lifts the wine's red berry fruits. The fruit benefited from long hang time in 2003, noted winemaker Gary Brookman, who added that the percentage of Taransaud barrels used at Grace has been raised from 20% in 2001 to two-thirds in 2004. Perhaps less aromatic today than the 2002, but these tannins are a bit suppler.
