The severity of the '97 vintage comes across in a contrast of bell pepper and dark licorice flavors. This has the bright, sharp acidity of green herbs along with a youthful grapiness. Give it six months to a year to develop beyond this blunt phase, then drink with something meaty.

Leafy, dry and earthy on the nose, with a hint of flowery red fruit. The palate rings with sharp acidity, which livens up blackberry, herb, black tea and carob flavors. Shows a lot of wayward, unintegrated oak on the finish but stays bright due to juicy acidity.

Polished and smooth, this well-integrated red balances black cherry, blackberry, tobacco and light herbal flavors. It has harmony and finesse. Drink now through 2003.

Good dark fruit - currant, plum and raisin - with coffee and herb notes and a coating of bittersweet chocolate. Burly for a Merlot, but I like its guts. Drink now through 2005.

Sweet and round, with plum and berry fruit kissed by judicious vanilla. Nice easy finish lets an herb hint peek out. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Deep ruby red with violet hues. Bouquet: A complex aroma that combines ripe black fruit and sweet plum, enhanced by vanilla and spice notes. Taste: Well concentrated, with very ripe, almost sweet tannins, resulting in a complex and balanced wine; a captivating, full-bodied red with a persistent and pleasant finish. Serving Suggestions: Delicious with pasta, casseroles, soft cheeses and paella.
