    (2004 Vintage) Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 132, May/June 2007 ($25-$35) Deep red. Expressive aromas of plum, cherry, chocolate, leather and rose petal, plus a whiff of tobacco. Juicy, fresh and precise; not fat but youthful and juicy, with good ripe acidity and flavor intensity for the year. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins and very good length. Still, I'd give this a couple years for its tannins and acids to fully harmonize.
