Has amazing depth and purity of flavor. Ultrarich, ripe and concentrated, with layers of black cherry, blackberry, currant and spicy, toasty hazelnut-scented oak. Intense and focused, with deep, persistent flavors and well-structured tannins.
Bright, glass-staining ruby. Nose begins medicinal and backward, more reminiscent of Bordeaux than Napa Valley, then opens with air to show black raspberry and graphite. Initially tightly coiled, serious and tannic but turned creamier and sweeter with air, revealing very fresh flavors of redcurrant, bitter cherry and spices. Ultimately every bit as lush and sweet as the 2004 version but with more inner-palate energy and tannic spine. But this one calls for at least a couple years of cellaring. These two wines clearly display the best attributes of their respective vintages. 92(+?) points
