Elegant spice and vanilla notes frame the nose, while supple red and black cherry fruit mingles with mineral and sanguine notes. Tangy, almost nervy minerality runs through the finish, along with some toast. Very stylish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
A gorgeous nose of dark fruit confiture and spice cake flavors is followed by a powerful palate of dark fruit, smoke, tar and minerals. Richly layered and densely structured, but with an elegant side as well. Best from 2006 through 2009. 300 cases importe —James Molesworth
