**One Star** Nicely extracted and filled with plenty of ripe, black-cherry fruit, this generously oaked bottling is accented by touches of coffee and hints of herbs not found in its cellarmates. It is moderately full in body and closes with a nominally tannic pucker drying its finish, and its somewhat unevolved manner makes five years of aging a good idea.
Ruby-red. Currant, dark chocolate, bandaid and eucalyptus on the nose. Juicy and flavorful, with a fresh flavor of crunchy currant and more depth than the S.L.V. bottling; here the acids are bright but more harmonious. Finishes with sweet tannins and a leathery nuance. (ST)
The middle of this wine is filled with soft black currant flavor, surrounded by spice and, for the moment, a green onion edge of reduction. It's as gracious as the wine's provenance would imply, and will likely develop a more complex depth of flavor with eight to ten years of age.
