International Wine CellarRating: 91(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 132, May/June 2007. ($125) Bright ruby. Hugely ripe, wild aromas of blackberry, smoke, chocolate, iron and blood. Then very ripe and dense but tightly wound, almost musclebound today, and not as sweet as the nose suggests despite showing almost candied dark fruit flavors. Finishes with huge tannins that are less fine and sophisticated than those of the 2005. Perhaps in an awkward stage today.
Vintage ChartRating for United States-California: 91 (slightly better than average year)<br/><br/>Drinkability: young, aging quickly, could be good now<br/>
