(From 2005 Vintage) #3 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008This is an intense and complex wine with a firm, well-structured palate. It shows ripe, concentrated fruit with vibrant acidity and a long finish."Deeply colored, with intense yet refined aromas and flavors of kirsch, boysenberry, dark cherry and spice. The fruit is supported by focused notes of mineral and graphite, and the finish is loaded with dark chocolate and medium tannins. Drink now through 2015." 95 Points Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator"A ripe, full-bodied red packed with dark fruity flavors as well as plenty of paprika. Powerful, with a dense core of spicy elements that follow through to the long, cream-filled finish. Drink now through 2012. 6,000 cases made."
