(2000 Vintage) Intense red ruby color. Complex and aromatic bouquet of red mature fruits, with cassis, plum, cherries, and jammy flavors intermixed with discreet oaky notes. An expressive and very well balanced wine with supple, mature and round tannins that makes it ready to drink right now. However, this wine will benefit if cellared for several years.
Wine Spectator(2006 Vintage) Really juicy and ripe, with fleshy layers of sweet raspberry and boysenberry fruit riding along red licorice, fruitcake and a nicely embedded vanilla streak. Long, polished finish. Very tasty.
