(2000 Vintage) Very rich, deep nose of pineapple, white flowers, game, truffle and honey. Then equally three-dimensional on the palate, with terrific superripe honey, fruit and game flavors of superb depth.

    (2004 Vintage) "Thoroughly primal, with a torrent of raspberry and boysenberry fruit rushing forth. Only shows hints of its full range, with licorice, incense, graphite and mocha flavors fluttering in the background. Has an iron-clad structure, with a long finish that shows great cut and grip. Best from 2009 through 2025. 14,165 cases made. - JM"
