International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($110; roughly two-thirds merlot and one-third cabernet sauvignon, with a touch of petit verdot) Bright, full ruby. Sweetly oaky aromas of cassis, violet, bitter chocolate and lead pencil. Sweet, suave and deep, with mouthfilling, deeply oaky dark berry and lead pencil flavors nicely framed by juicy acidity. Finishes with impressively fine tannins for the vintage, and strong fruit flavors of blackberry and currant. This is the "brother" of winemaker Bob Foley's eponymously labeled blend; at present, this is the more seductive wine, while Foley's shows a firmer tannic structure.

Another great showing for this under-appreciated 2000. Liquid lead pencil, cassis, black fruits, and firm tannins make this a winner!

Deep ruby, with a touch of brick orange. Dried, somewhat spicy oak, pencil shavings, dark berry fruit, and menthol aromas. Tannins are still prominent, and a bit grainy. Balance good, with a medium long finish, turning a tad dry in the mouth.
