Very Bordeaux-like in many ways, from the sleek, elegant framework to the flavor profile of drying berry, currant, black licorice and dusty, cedary oak. Displays touches of graphite, ending with cigar box nuances and gravelly tannins. (JL, Web Only-2015)
Dark red. Reticent but pure aromas of dark berries, mocha, licorice and menthol. At once suave and penetrating, showing a cooling herbal element to the intense flavors of cassis, boysenberry, cedar, licorice and mint. Gained in richness as it opened in the glass, but this wine especially stands out for its energy. Finishes with ripe, firm tannins and excellent length. (ST)
The 2005 Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard...reveals loads of licorice, graphite, and blackcurrants in a sexy, toasty style with hints of earth, loamy soil notes and a floral underpinning. The wine is fragrant, with great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and almost a Mouton-Rothschild-like crème de cassis element. This wine is drinking well now, but will continue to evolve for another two decades. (RP) 98+
