Oak dominates this wine, giving it toast and vanilla caramel aromas and flavors. The underlying wine is soft and fruity, with blackberries and cherries. Drink now. Production was 24,146 cases.

Firm, dry and tannic, trim and full-bodied, with spicy current, mineral, cedar and underbrush notes. Complex, if on a modest scale. Drink now through 2015.

Minty and ripe, with black cherry and chocolate flavors that carry through the firm tannins of the finish. Drink now through 2006.
