dark ruby and rusty/gold color
very citrus-y and lively nose, a bit of leather and dust
very light on the palette with even more citrus
just a bit of leather coming through
very, very light and not a bad finish, just slightly dry
definitely past it's prime - was definitely better a year or two ago

strange nose
very sweet up front
some fruit, black cherry, but lots of tannins
unbalanced and awkward - the oak does nothing for this wine
long, strange finish
probably too early to drink, and really not bad for the price

Great wine for the price. Nothing too outstanding - quite a bit of fruit, with cherry at the nose, but fairly dry.

Thin and uninteresting. Not a bad wine, but costs far too much.

Very lively. Nice nose, continuing to very berry, tart, fun body. Currant, bing cherry, raspberries. Light to medium on the tannins. Finish of distinct cherries.

Beautiful ruby color. Pleasant, sweet nose. Fairly sweet with a medium-light body. Velvety smooth texture. Raspberry, cranberry, mulberry notes. Nice fruity finish.

"Perfumey" and aromatic head. Out of balance and strange tastes of oak and fruit.

Very dry. Light-medium bodied. Uninteresting. Spices and earth. Overpriced.

Fantastic wine. Nothing specific as I drank this with a friend some time ago. However, I drank a bottle of the 2004 recently and it was not nearly as good.

Pleasant, slightly acidic nose. Very dry, with a nice structure. Spices, tobacco, and licorice, with a hint of cranberry. Nice finish, maybe just a bit too tannic.

Very lush body. Lots of fruit. Somewhat sweet. Lively and simple. Wonderful long finish with plum and cherry flavors. Very clean.

Very strange acidic nose. Lots of fruit and cherry flavors, as well as some spice. Slightly dry. Very nice finish. Overall, unbalanced and awkward.
