($50) Full medium ruby. Sappy aromas of raspberry, espresso and pungent oak. Youthfully medicinal and a bit musclebound today, but boasts impressive concentration and extract. The oak component contributes sweetness in the middle palate, but today the wood tannins give the wine a rather brutal character. Incidentally, I found this estate's regular release too tannic to recommend.

Vinfolio purchase. Better than expected. Bought from retail, held 2 years. Youthful color and over 2+ hours it held form and improved. Served with cedar-plank salmon with a strong herb/spice rub and it matched up. The 2nd hour it is mouth-watering and gaining complexity on the nose. 14% alcohol is heady but the wine is taut, leathery, with briar-patch and small, wild, tart red raspberries. Worth the buy-and-hold price of $45 in 2009, and with plenty of runway into 2015+.
