(From 2002 Vintage)
Truly a showstopper. It is big and bold, with deep richness and power to spare. mature vines provided grapes of the deepest concentration. The wine has a plush texture with well-mannered tannins. You'll love it!
88 Points, Wine Spectator:
"Intense and vibrant, with a supple core of currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit that's shaded by light cedary, toasty oak and a whiff of anise. The tannins are ripe and fine-grained and it offers a good measure of depth and complexity. Drink now through 2012. 700 cases made. –JL" (11/15/2005)
