Golden color with intensely ripe and powerful aromas of apricots and honeycomb. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and an oily, flavorful finish. Over the top style, but I love it. Drink now. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling
Dark and juicy, with firm tannins around a lively core of caramel-scented blackberry, floral and peppery spice flavors, lingering on the firm finish. Best from 2006 through 2011. 4,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
Dense, but it seems to get more transparent with each sip. It has pepper and licorice overtones to the dark berry and cherry flavors, lingering enticingly as the finish starts to float. Drink now through 2012. 3,343 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
Bright and vivid, with celery-tinged grapefruit, lime and green apple flavors that keep hopping through the long finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
Ripe, fleshy and focused, with lots of black currant, cocoa, tobacco, mineral and loam flavors. A bit tight on the finish, but juicy and concentrated. Cellar short-term. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2006 through 2009. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
