Bright ruby-red. Aromas of raw currant, coffee and smoked meat. Lush yet somewhat stunted flavors of black cherry and cassis. A substantial wine with plenty of fat and structure, but seems a bit pinched, even short today. The tannins build with aeration. Needs time in bottle.

Really fruity, with an abundance of raspberry, violet and berry character. Full-bodied, with a velvety tannin structure and a long berry and toasted oak aftertaste. The oak is a bit dominant, so give it time to mellow.--Georges de Latour Private Reserve vertical. 12,000 cases made.

Watched the 49er game and opened this up. The body was light, the color was good. Upfront easy drinking with eh flavors of rutherford dust and dried fruit in the middle. Finish was short but pleasant. Nice to drink but well past its prime.
