International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Good dark red. Dark cherry, tar, menthol and smoky oak on the slightly high-toned nose, with dark raspberry and floral nuances emerging with aeration. Silky and round if a bit youthfully unforthcoming. In fact, this shows no easy sweetness today and finishes quite backward, with firm, slightly dry tannins and an edge of acidity. But the wine's fresh fruit element suggests it will improve with a bit of time in bottle.
