"Ripe, intense and concentrated, with loamy earth, ripe currant and wild berry. Shows hints of cedar, anise and sage and chewy tannins. Finishes with a bit of heat, but that's a minor point given all the flavor. Much to admire, including the price. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2009. 3,200 cases made. (JL)"
