*Highly Recommended and Top 100 Wines of 2004* A stunning effort. Wonderful fragrant aromas of violets, vanilla bean, espresso and tiers of black cherry and blackberry fruit. This is an unusually fruity and complex wine that is quite reliant on oak for some of its flavors, but also a wealth of rich, concentrated dark berry flavors, finishing with a long, luxurious finish. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. (JL)
There is no getting around the fact that this very showy bottling owes much to its lavish oak, but in the nose, flavor and finish, it delivers all of the well-defined fruit that any would-be critic will want. Big-bodied and very broad-shouldered with a rich, fleshy feel, it is a mouthfilling wine that continues the winery's long run of red wine successes, and its impressive sense of structure, strength and riveting depth are sure to keep it going for decade or more.
