Mature, with alluring tar, iron, olive and plum sauce aromas and flavors, all stitched together by nervy mineral notes and still-fresh acidity. Drink now through 2006. 300 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Fleshy, fruit-driven version, with creamy layers of blackberry, fig and plum. Plenty of toast and cocoa here too, lending a slightly firm feel to the finish, but still lots of fruit. Drink now through 2007. 8,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
Lean, with white peach, floral and mineral notes followed by a hint of ginger on the steely finish. For fans of the lean style. Drink now through 2009. 3,500 cases made. —James Molesworth
Boisterous and muscular, with a meaty aroma and intense raspberry, red cherry and currant flavor. Long, chewy finish, like biting into a crisp nectarine. Drink now through 2008. 600 cases made. —Kim Marcus
A rather fresh and easygoing '03, with raspberry and black cherry fruit fronting grilled herb and mineral hints on the finish. One to drink while you wait for the other '03s to soften. Drink now through 2010. 5,830 cases made. —James Molesworth
