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.

    Very ripe and sweetly oaked, yet a bit dry at its heart and held back by its slight shortfall of fruit, this bottling exhibits plenty of weight on the palate without finding the stuffing to be wholly complete. It is still framed by plenty of tannin but has begun to fade all the same, and, we would opt for drinking it up quickly. Originally reviewed at no stars.
