This is Côtes du Rhône? Thick and crammed with dark plum and currant fruit, along with tar, cocoa and mineral notes. A bit of a brute now, but this should blossom in time for fall barbecue fare. Drink now through 2006. Tasted twice, with consistent note —James Molesworth
Meaty, seductive style, with loads of brambly flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with a deep well of mocha, cream and peppery spices on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus
Open-knit, with peach, cantaloupe and floral flavors supported by a fine minerality. Shows nice acidity on the finish. 500 cases made. —James Molesworth
This dark-colored wine is brimming with dark flavors--earth, mineral, plum, coffee--that mingle effortlessly in a racy texture. The fine tannins and smoky oak are well-integrated, and the wine dances to a long, smoky finish. Drink now through 2010. —Thomas Matthews
