Rich, in an understated style, with a mix of ripe pear, fig and apricot flavors shaded by light toasty oak that gives it a slight butterscotch edge, gaining complexity on the finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made. —James Laube
This wine offers a big, ripe core of blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors, with ripe tannins and suave mocha and mineral notes. Round, fleshy finish echoes with fruit. Drink now through 2006. —James Molesworth
