Wine Description

"Enormously complex, deep, dark, rich and polished, with layers of concentrated black cherry, blackberry, currant and anise. Framed by pretty toasty oak, the fruit holds a firm upper hand, turning richly tannic on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2015."-Wine Spectator

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    High in loamy, woodsy, caramelly complexities and solidly fruity in both nose and mouth, this fairly full-bodied bottling is supple and ever so slightly fleshy in palatefeel with underlying strata of ripe fruit, tannin and a dollop of finishing heat. Its solid center of fruit and good depth carries it and allows full expression of its black cherry, curranty, oaky flavors, and those attractions hold admirably in the lingering aftertaste.
  • International Wine Cellar
    Good medium ruby. Crystallized currant, licorice and smoke on the vibrant nose. Dense and firmly structured, with dark berry, licorice and tar flavors. Offers a peppery impression of concentration. Finishes sappy, firmly tannic and long. I would not be surprised if this wine merited a higher score five to seven years from now.
