The 2004 Paleo (Cabernet Franc) is an intense, brooding wine imbued with the essence of dark fruit, scorched earth, grilled herbs, toasted oak and licorice. Made in a rich, super-concentrated style, this imposing Paleo will require patience. A second bottle took quite a bit of aeration before the elegance of its silky-textured tannins emerged. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2020.

Medium-deep ruby. Refined aromas of floral red berries and high-grade milk chocolate are somewhat overwhelmed by coconut and vanilla. Finely textured and lithe on the palate, with sneaky concentration to its redcurrant, raspberry, milk chocolate and mineral flavors. The long, nuanced finish features very fine tannins.

This 2003, grown on a mixture of chalk, limestone, clay, rocks and sand, shows incredible finesse for the vintage. Initially hidden behind dense tannins, it comes alive with air, a steady brightness building from the cool middle of the wine. Flavors of wild blackberries and dried herbs become more detailed over time, acting like agents of complexity over the wineandrsquo;s supple, juicy texture. Probably best at 10 years from the vintage , Paleo is proof that Le Macchiole is on to something with cabernet franc in Bolgheri.

The 2005 Paleo (Cabernet Franc) is impressive. Wild herbs, roasted coffee beans, new leather, minerals and dark fruit emerge from this long, refined wine. Although the intensity tapers off slightly on the mid-palate, this is an absolutely gorgeous wine loaded with style and personality. Still tightly wound, it needs further bottle age to reach its peak. It is arguably the most successful of the estate's 2005s. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.

Cabernet franc seems so well adapted to the soils at Le Macchiole that its impossible to separate the land from the grape. Grown in a mix of limestone and chalk, with rocks, sand and clay, this '05 seamlessly combines savory, ferrous tannins with fresh black- and blueberry flavors. It's cool and dark when first poured, that darkness offset by high notes of fresh mint. With air it becomes full and broad, the coolness a textural component that feels like silk pulled tightly across a sheet of iron. It's beautiful wine now, with abundant complexity and flawless integration. Built to cellar for at least ten to 15 years.

A full-throttle red, with lots of plum, berry and vanilla character and Indian spices underneath. Full, silky, wild and long. Cabernet Franc. Best after 2008.

The estate's 2002 Paleo (100% Cabernet Franc) is an excellent effort for the vintage. It is a fairly compact Paleo with pretty aromatics and notes of smoke, tar, herbs and dark fruit on a medium-bodied frame. Although it displays good length and balance some rough edges remain and bottle aging will only help to a limited extent. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2017.
