"(from vines planted to the low-yielding California Clone 6, on alluvial gravel) Good medium ruby. Rocky, roasted aromas of black cherry, cassis and menthol. Concentrated, silky and sweet, with youthful black fruit and menthol flavors and good inner-mouth energy. Chewy and tight on the back end, with fine-grained tannins and lovely vinosity. Quite pure, primary and long. 90-93 points"
