A touch reduced, but with a strong beam of raspberry and blackberry fruit working through it, supported by briary tannins and finishing with cocoa and herb notes. Let it flesh out in the cellar a bit first. Drink now through 2007. 2,915 cases made. —James Molesworth
Lean and focused, with grass, chive, mineral and floral notes that show great cut. Lingering gooseberry note on the finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2007. 5,000 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Ripe, powerful blackberry and currant fruit cuts a broad swath, while tobacco, garrigue, loam and game notes fill in behind it. Nice grip on the finish. Drink now through 2008. 2,500 cases made. —James Molesworth
Muscular Rhône-style, with Valrhona chocolate, licorice, black currant and tar flavors. Long finish pumps out vibrant sanguine and mineral notes thanks to racy acidity. Drink now through 2007. 400 cases imported. —James Molesworth
