My second note on this wine, I am surprised and impressed by the completeness of this wine. Nice initial aromatics upon opening, good viscosity and mouthfeel, still very young and vibrant but no hard edges, will likely improve from here, like most 2000's. would have liked to have purchased more. Completely under the radar, probably a RP sleeper pick, I bought it later and $26 a satisfying bottle of wine.
This wine really knocked us out last night. Wonderful color, and bouquet of toasty oak, deep and rich on the palate with notes of mocha, smoke, black and red fruits, chewy and delicious. Great finish. It will be interesting to see its evolution. From magnum.
