    (2001 Vintage) If boasting a fair degree of Napa Valley richness in its first nose, the wine reveals slightly weedy, green bean notes as part of its broader background of cherry, chocolate and caramel. Fairly full in body and somewhat rounded in early mouthfeel, it seems to stumble just a bit towards the backend and lose just a bit of its fruity continuity and energy.
