Jammy black currant and blueberry fruit greet the nose showing off a bit of a pruny edge with very black peppery top notes and a slightly dusty character. In the mouth this has surprisingly intact acid, offering decent brightness and height in the mouth with lovely blackberry fruit but here is a fair amount of alcohol showing here, and while the fruit does show nice purity the wine is not particularly well balanced. 84pts

Really dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. Best from 2011 through 2030.

Thoroughly primal, with a torrent of raspberry and boysenberry fruit rushing forth. Only shows hints of its full range, with licorice, incense, graphite and mocha flavors fluttering in the background. Has an iron-clad structure, with a long finish that shows great cut and grip. Best from 2009 through 2025.

Ruby-red. Powerful red and dark berry aromas verge on liqueur-like but are enlivened by zesty mineral and anise accents. Lush, supple and sweet, with deep raspberry and cherry flavors, fine-grained tannins and complicating herb and smoked meat tones. Very smooth on the finish, which is sappy, deep in cherry flavor and impressively long.

Dark red color. Sweet, lush but energetic aromas of bitter cherry, redcurrant, rhubarb, espresso and damp earth. Silky and fine-grained, with a wonderfully suave texture and youthful, primary dark berry, singed cherry and licorice flavors. The very fine, dusty tannins perfectly frame the sweet, fresh red berry flavors. Finishes seamless and very long.

Deep ruby to the rim. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Mildly oaked. Minerals, black fruits, earth. Youthful and intense, with a lean and angular impression on the palate, buoyed by firm acidity. Crisp and flavorful finish shows length.

Deep ruby to the rim. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Mildly oaked. Mildly tannic. Black fruits, minerals. Full, fleshy aromas with a rounded personality. Firmly structured through the finish, with a deep core of black fruits. Approachable now, but this is built to age.

Ripe and fleshy, with lots of black cherry, plum, anise and tar flavors riding along a succulent palate. Sweet and velvety on the finish; this is drinkable now but will age easily. Drink now through 2011.
