(From 2011 Vintage) From one of the most difficult vintages in our history comes a wine that richly rewards all our efforts – from fragrant aroma through the round, full mouth to its long, polished finish this wine offers both layered complexity and easy-to-love juiciness. In the nose and mouth I get so many scents and flavors – red and black cherry, red and black plum, smoke, white pepper, sage, oregano and wet earth. This lush package is kept together in a structure of fine, ripe tannins.

Wine Spectator(From 2000 Vintage) #36 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2002."Smooth-textured, with polished currant, mocha, cranberry and cherry, plus touches of tobacco, coffee and spice. A bit tough-edged with tannin, but certainly not out of line for a young wine. Best from 2003 through 2009. 10,000 cases made. (JL)"
