Good medium ruby. Explosive nose of black raspberry, coffee and leather. Hugely rich, dense and sweet, with deep flavors of currant, plum and chocolate complicated by underlying minerality. Wonderfull...
Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006 - #3!"Intense blackberry and cherry, with hints of currant. Toasted oak and sweet tobacco too. Roses and other flowers, such as lilacs. Full-bodied, with masses of tannins yet incredibly long and seductive. Best after 2012.98 Points, Wine Spectator
June 2010 loads of fruit coming out od this wine with great balance? very luscious and upfront as you would expect 2003. most enjoyable
beautiful nose, nice fruit, cassis, a little vanilla, more subtle than intense...Amy gives it 4.5.
