Medium-weight, lighter in color than most from this year, this is supple, graceful and blanced, with pleasing ripe plum and cherry fruit. Comes up shy of richness and concentration, splitting the difference between complex and simple. Drink now through 2008.

Dark, rich and enormously complex, with a solid core of black cherry, plum, currant, anise and cedary flavors. Beautifully focused, with a sense of elegance and finesse. Drawn from extensive vineyard holdings; an impressive step up in quality. A tremendous value for an exceptional wine. Best from 2003 through 2010.

Ruby-red. Red currant, tar, coffee and nuts on the nose. Sappy, bright and smooth, with a silky texture but also a faint green edge. Offers good flavor intensity but narrows a bit on the finish.

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: `Despite its wealth of rich oak and its tantalizing touches of root beer cocoa and cream this keenly defined opus is very specific in its deep Cabernet fruit and its strong themes of ripe currants stay the course from beginning to end. It is an especially well-polished wine on the palate and its very trim tannins allow its concentrated fruit to shine through but its present temptations noted it is impeccably balanced and promises to get better and better for a good many years.` (04/08) Also got 90 points from Wine Spectator: `Ripe and fleshy with generous plum black cherry and red cherry fruit that's intense and complex without being too powerful or overblown. Ends with firm fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2012.`
