Raisin and plum skin character with a medium to full body and a silky, fresh finish. Slightly disjointed now. Should come together with a bit of bottle age. Best after 2005.

Ruby-red. Musky aromas of raspberry, espresso, baconfat and gunflint. Sweet, dense and pliant but with sound framing acidity. Nicely concentrated flavors of berries and baking spices. Has personality, but is it ripe enough? This started out a bit like syrah on the nose, but with extended aeration it was more cabernet-like, with flavors of black cherry liqueur and mint.

A bigger, more fruit-driven version of the 90 point-rated 2001. Deep garnet hue; highly aromatic with notes of anise, black currant and vanilla. Juicy plum and black fruit flavors dance delicately with toasty oak, spice and licorice.

A solid red, with plum, berry and light cedar character. Full-bodied, with solid tannins and a long finish. All there. Best after 2007.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino from Poggio Il Castellare is a dark, inward wine imbued with dark cherries, plums, tar, smoke, licorice and new leather, all of which come together on a powerful, incisive frame. This burly, somewhat rough around the edges Brunello shows plenty of length and richness, even if the tannins might benefit from a measure of added polish. Still, I see this working well with boldly flavored dishes. Anticipated maturity: 2014andndash;2024.

This is a very smooth and polished wine with good density, length and a squeaky-clean feel on the palate. This wine’s texture is fine and smooth with buoyant aromas of wild berry, forest floor and root beer that keep the intensity alive.
