  • Rich aromas and medium-dark garnet in glass, opens with typical cassis and black currant flavors, sweet oak and soft tannins in a pleasant, medium-bodied style. Light mouthfeel, and a medium finish.

  • Awesome. Enough said, was worried that it might of been past it's prime but it paired beautifully with a smoked brisket and German potato salad tonight. Velvety and smooth with firm tannins... I received this bottle as a gift and it was fantastic.

  • Wow! This has become a real beauty. This wine shines from beginning to end, with a full body, but smooth; bright red fruit which explodes mid palate, without becoming too big or dominant; and a looong finish. Complex and smooth. I think this will get even better as the tannins smooth out a little more. Paired perfectly with roasted leg of lamb and stood up as an equal with the 2003 Opus One. Decanted 90 minutes, but definitely improved the longer it sat in the glass.

  • ready to drink. drank without first decanting. A fair amount of black fruit but lacking the full character of some of the higher end california meritages. Still, a very nice wine.

  • Clear dark garnet with a brick tint. Nose of dark fruit and vanilla with a hint of cherry, menthol, and earth. Ripe palate with currant, blackberry,vanilla, and an herbal note. Good length. Pleasant acidity. Mellow tannins. Velvety texture. My last bottle. Addendum: after three days, this wine was drinking exceptionally well.
