On the jammy side, with raspberry, blackberry and fig fruit followed by licorice and briar notes on the bouncy finish. More fruit than grip, but will certainly have fans. Drink now. 100 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Ripe with juicy acidity supporting the plum, blackberry and licorice flavors. Plump, smoky finish. Drink now. 250 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Soft, ripe and generous with its black cherry, black olive and rosemary flavors, lingering on the polished, toasty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2011. 8,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
Firm and concentrated, with a tight band of spicy, earthy black cherry and blackberry fruit that turns to red plum jam. Firm tannins on the finish give the flavors structure and detail. Drink now through 2009. 2,223 cases made. —James Laube
Dried citrus, apple and peach flavors here, fighting with the bracing acidity today. It's concentrated and long, so give it some time to sort itself out. Best from 2007 through 2012. 2,900 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
