Smooth and velvety, with something in the flavor range that's reminiscent of tequila, not alcoholic but with pleasant currant and cherry fruit to balance. Drink now through 2008. 5,272 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
A good, solid beam of red currant and blackberry fruit is layered with cocoa, grilled herb and toast. Slightly firm finish from the toast, but plenty of flesh. Should fill out nicely in the near term. Drink now through 2008. 26,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
