Medium-weight, offering a pleasing array of spicy currant, black cherry, anise, cedar and leather. Drink now through 2007.

A smooth, harmonious wine, with scents of herb, and currant and blackberry flavors that are well-focused and nicely proportioned, finishing with firm, ripe tannins that let the fruit flavors flow through. Drink now through 2009.

Stylish aroma of black cherry, cocoa powder and vanilla. Medium full, this coats the palate with layers of flavor. Ripe and rich with great finesse and complexity. Beautiful drinking now, it should hold for 10-15 years.
