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
Focused, ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit dominates this fleshy, full-bodied version, while game, mineral and tar notes chime in. Solid, fleshy finish. Drink now through 2006. 3,500 cases made. —James Molesworth
Muscular and brutish now, with thick dark cocoa and toast dominating the blackberry and currant fruit. Big, brawny finish is loaded, but very tight. Worth cellaring to see if the fruit can push through the toast. Best from 2006 through 2008. 10,486 cases —James Molesworth
Aromas of plums, blackberries and raisins follow through to a full-bodied palate, velvety tannins and a plummy, fresh herb aftertaste. Well done. And excellent value. Best after 2007. 10,000 cases made. —James Suckling
Smooth, ripe and generous, brimming with cherry, raspberry, pepper and bittersweet chocolate flavors, which linger enticingly on the fine-grained finish. Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. Drink now through 2010. 6,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
