Aged 13 Years
Still a blockbuster with little sign of age! Deep, rich and smooth. Aromatics are of boysenberry, red-berry with hints of licorice, flavors of blue and red-berry framed in sweet notes of Oreo and molasses. The tannins are truly smooth with time and the finish is long and lingering. The wine is in its stride and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.
92 points, Wine Enthusiast (February 1, 2005): “A very fine wine, rich, full-bodied and sensationally ripe. Floods the mouth with cassis and oak flavors, and the tannins are sweet and intricate. Feels great on the palate.”
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
