(From 2004 Vintage) Black cherry, licorice and menthol aromas. A supple, pliant midweight from nicely ripe fruit. Features firm minerality, sweet tannins and good length but could use more personality.

RP the greatest CB I have ever tasted, this monumental effort possesses enormous concentration, with loads of black and blue fruits intermixed with damp earth and forest floor. I have never seen a CB so seamless, so powerfull, yet at the same time, so elegant and densely complex. They have certainly fone something here thathas not been accomplished over the last three decades I have been tasting this estates wines. Opaque purple in color and full-bodied, this big-time sleeper of the vintage merits serious attention for the first time in my professional career.
