Edgy at first, with lively acidity pulling along red and black cherry, violet, mineral and sandalwood flavors. Long, alluring finish—like a Burgundy. Needs some short-term cellaring though. Drink now through 2007. 300 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Muscular, with a hint of funk (that blows off quickly) followed by black currant, espresso, bittersweet chocolate and loam flavors. Concentrated on the finish. For fans of the style. Drink now through 2007. 3,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
