Medium bright ruby. Slightly sauvage aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, meat, leather and black pepper. Stylish and sweet, with moderately dense, creamy flavors of raspberry, roast meat and tobacco. Rather sophisticated texture for California wine. I would have scored this wine higher were it not for its slightly drying tannins, which did not soften even as the middle palate grew increasingly silky with extended aeration.

Very vigorous crimson. Looks exceptionally healthy. Still quite a 'buried’ bouquet. Big and bold and sweet on the palate delivering lots of pleasure. Quite powerful but at least there is fruit on the front palate to compensate for lots of very fine tannins at the end.

Oops, i think i may have waited too long. Still very silky, but fades quickly. It still had some complexity in the flavor, but i'm sure its on the downslide. Dont hold any longer, drink now or you'll be better off cooking with it.
