Tasting Notes:
tasted: January 1, 2010 , Vince Manning
3.5 stars "Color: evolved; Better the second day. Decanted 1/2 bottle on day one. The nose was initially intense with must and "pickled dill" aromas. The high degree of acidity tamed on day two and paired well with left-over game hen, beans and rice. "

91 points "Opulent red. Intense aromas of currants, cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. Best after 2008. 42,000 cases made. (JS)" Best 2008-2018

89 points "This is a nicely textured, plum/ruby-colored 2000 with a moderately intense bouquet of black fruits intermingled with licorice, vanilla, and plums. The wine is pure, elegant, medium-bodied, and stylish. While not a blockbuster, it is delicious, nicely structured, and accessible. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016. " Best 2006-2016
