Well-oaked, with cedary vanilla flavors adding dimension to the ripe cherry and currant-scented flavors, finishing with firm tannins. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Soft and easy, with berry, plum, tobacco and sage flavors and supple tannins. Acidity is low. This is a dry, pleasant wine of no special complexity, but fun to drink.

Pleasantly supple and balanced, with ripe, approachable black cherry, plum and wild berry fruit that has a slight candied edge. Moderate tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

Quite tannic, but that can't stop the layers of licorice, blackberry, herb and mint that blend nicely through the moderate finish. Needs some time to settle down and soften up; best from 2001 through 2005.

Nicely focused and easy to sip, with bright plum and spicy oak aromas and fruit-forward black cherry, herb and sassafras flavors. Drink now through 2011.

Firm in structure, with tight, cedary currant, earth and cherry notes, turning dry. A style that will appeal to left-bank Bordeaux lovers Drink now through 2006.

Deep ruby color. Big, dense, jammy aromas of ripe plums and black cherry. Plush, elegant, full, ripe-fruit flavors framed with spicy oak and subtle youthful tannins. The wine is fleshy and full, with gobs of flavor.

Winemaker's Notes:

A rich purple-violet hue, the wine shows a rich, deep fruit concentration and jamminess. Hints of spice and toasty oak reflect vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar. The wine is bright and clear with a long full textured finish.
