Minerally and intense on the nose, with clean aromas of currant, dried spice and mineral. Full, tightly packed palate, with big velvety tannins and a long finish. Best after 2008. 1,000 cases made.

Big, with alluring graham and ginger aromas followed by a layered palate of cardamom, fig, piecrust, nectarine and persimmon. Rich but dry and focused, with a long, detailed finish. Lovely. Drink now through 2010. 620 cases made. —James Molesworth
