Rustic and teetering on syrupy, with loads of blackberry, huckleberry, tobacco and cedar. Intense, concentrated and persistent on the finish, with the fruit flavors dominating. Drink now through 2011.

Aromas of sweet plum, currant and a touch of coconut lead to a ripe, rich, fleshy yet firm band of Cabernet flavors, with a mix of cherry, blackberry and a a touch of mocha, finishing with firm, ripe, integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2006 through 2012.

Inky ruby. Impressively complex bouquet of cassis, cherry-cola, potpourri, graphite and Asian spices; lots going on here. Juicy, finely etched dark fruit flavors are sweetened by a suave vanillin oak quality and firmed by silky tannins. The spiciness carries through the long, seductively sweet finish. Showing very nicely today.

Subtle earthy tones combine with a hint of leather in the aroma of this deep, inky-black hued wine. The entry is soft and subtle, with ample black fruit and coffee. Cherry, currant and a hint of plum evolve into layers of chocolate and caramel on the mid-palate. A soft, seamless finish is balanced by flavors of spicy French oak.

This wine exhibits a wonderful purity of ripe Cabernet fruit, with zesty plum, wild berry, blackberry and hints of dusty sage, earth and mineral. The tannins are ripe and firm, too, giving it a nice backbone. On the finish, though, it's the fruit that shines through. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2012.

High-toned black cherry and wild berry fruit is ripe, spicy and complex, if on a modest scale. Gains depth and richness on the finish, where this picks up a hint of prune and spice. The best of two bottles tasted. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2012.

A very impressive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (91%), Cabernet Franc (6%), and Merlot (3%). It is dark magenta in color with a bright, expressive nose of raspberry pie, smoke and vanilla. The feel is textured to the hilt, dense but not overbearing and complex enough to suggest varied layers of ripe fruit. On the finish, hints of earthiness and dirt are complemented by blackberry aromas and heavy tannins, creating a perfect balance. An argument exists for further aging, but it can be enjoyed now with no harm done.

Aromas of boysenberry, leather, mocha, mint and cassis combine with light layers of caramel and vanilla resulting from the extended oak ageing. A soft, fruit forward, elegant entry segues into a mid palate with length and complexity. Seamless, integrated tannins marry with ripe fruit, and flavors of coffee, butterscotch and hint of pencil lead on the finish of this wine
