91 points "Lovely mint, cocoa and black currant aromas lead to a plush, yet sleek palate that has waves of blackberry, plum, cassis, currant and chocolate flavors cascading over each other. Structured, but very fine-grained, the texture wins out on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2007. 4,165 cases made." Best 2004-2007
