Plush in texture yet focused in flavor, this red shows black cherry and currant flavors that are ripe but lively, backed by toasty oak and accents of minerals and herbs. Drink now through 2010. 2,000 cases imported. —Thomas Matthews
Dark, full-bodied and chewy, with meaty blackberry and mineral character. Medium- to full-bodied, with good, solid tannins and a long finish. Well done. Best after 2005. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling
