A bit tight, with nervy acidity up front supporting green almond, ginger, humus and clove hints. Then turns tender on the finish, with fine minerality stretching it out. Drink now through 2009. 2,520 cases made. —James Molesworth
Dark and lush, with cocoa, black currant and tar flavors giving way to loam and meat notes on the gripping finish. Solid, gutsy wine just in time for winter. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2007. 250 cases imported. —James Molesworth
