  • It's clear that this wine has not budged since I originally reviewed it from bottle in 2004, except perhaps that the nose has closed in on itself somewhat. Wonderfully complex aromas of ripe red and black fruit, crushed herbs and fresh berries with unmistakable earth aromas merge into medium-bodied, powerful, concentrated and vibrant flavors that are firmly structured but not overtly tannic with plenty of underlying material and sappy extract that still buffers the majority of the structure and imparts a velvety character to the precise, minerally and admirably persistent finish. This is an extremely impressive effort that just needs time to soften and broaden as it remains tight and linear.

    Score: 93 Allen Meadows, (32), October 2008
