Muscular, with a hint of funk (that blows off quickly) followed by black currant, espresso, bittersweet chocolate and loam flavors. Concentrated on the finish. For fans of the style. Drink now through 2007. 3,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
Fresh and elegant, displaying pear and rosewater aromas and flavors, picking up a hint of litchi on the finish. A more delicate style for the vintage, this shows balance and harmony. Drink now through 2007. 7,500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
