Lithe and muscular, with plenty of red plum, tobacco, dried cherry and allspice flavors. A bit tight now; hard to say if it will open up more. Coffee and baker's chocolate flavors enliven the finish. Drink now through 2008. 5,140 cases made. —Kim Marcus
This dry, lively, refreshing style brims with pear, citrus and a touch of resin as the fruit lingers effusively. Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Marsanne. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
