Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) The bottle opens to aromatic beauty followed in the mouth with a core of juicy, black fruit, chocolate, black plums, cassis, black and red cherry, black tea, and vanilla and spice. Ripe tannins put together good structure for long term aging.

    This comparatively polished, fully developed wine is both open and well-appointed with fruit at this point. It is supple and rounded in feel with scattered suggestions of olives, loam and tea running its length, and if fairly mature, it is in no danger of fading away soon. Originally reviewed at **.
