Aged: 12 Years
Big and powerful upon release, this wine has grown and matured into such a beautiful and amazing gem. Classic flavors of dried cherries and cranberries with rich seamless layers of bittersweet chocolate, dried flowers and cigar box. Nice elements of cooking spices and earthy tones add to its complexity.
92 points, Wine Spectator (November 15, 2004): “…a sleek, rich, concentrated style that’s very Bordeaux-like in its balance and restraint…Tannins are firm and integrated…”
90 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (May/June 2005): “…Black raspberry, currant and dark chocolate aromas lifted by a floral top note. Fat and full but quite dry, with currant and blueberry flavors…palate-coating tannins…”
California Grapevine (date unknown): “Attractive, forward, toasty…Highly recommended.”
This wine was featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
