Loads of blackberries, black licorice and berries here. Full-bodied, with loads of smoky oak. Slightly hollow midpalate. Pumped up but I like it. Best after 2006. 11,500 cases made. —James Suckling
Firm and concentrated, with a rich, lively beam of citrus, pear and spicy ginger scents that are well-focused and persistent. The finish gives a cleansing sensation. Drink now through 2008. 8,000 cases made.
Lithe, polished and seductive for its peach and apricot fruit, with peppery floral nuances lingering on a dry, silky background. Drink now through 2010. 5,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
A serious Pinot Grigio, with lots of apple, floral and light pineapple character. Full-bodied, fresh and lively. Long finish. Drink now. 3,000 cases made. —James Suckling
A hedonist's delight. Very rich, almost fat, this medium-bodied Riesling has enough acidity to carry its apricot, guava and vanilla custard flavors to a long conclusion. Delicious. Drink now through 2018. 500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
