tasted: October 27, 2006 , ed elanjian
93 points "Color: deep; Overall: well balanced; WINE SPECTATOR Top 100 Deftly toasted, with vanilla and mocha suavely intertwined with lush plum, blackberry and boysenberry fruit. Long, plush and smoky through the finish, with the fruit taking an encore. A beauty. Drink now through 2008. 4,000 cases made. –JM" Best 2006-2008

93 points "winemaker's notes: #66 Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2005! Has a deep, dark purple color with violet tones. The nose is intense and complex, with ripe plum and blackberry fruit aromas with floral hints of violets and sweet spice. The mouthfeel is full, yet elegant with black cherry fruits and a touch of spicy black pepper. The finish is long and persistent, with soft, sweet tannins. " Best 2006-2011
