"Color: deep; Nose: intense; Aromas: mineral, nutty, herbal, spicy, woody, red berry, black berry, dried fruit; Acidity: lively; Body: full-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: well balanced; Amazing juice. This is actually the 2005 (2006 has NOT yet been released)! It was such a surpise with tons of fruit and more acidity than most Southern Oregon wines, especially of the Tempranillo's. Earth, spice, plums, raisin, coffee, leather, new car smell addiction. Love this wine. Drinking very well now, potential for improvement...possibly, try one a year for the next 5, you won't be disappointed. "
