($33-$40) Deep red. Warm, roasted red berry scents, with notes of candied licorice and roasted herbs. A low-acid style, with a round, supple texture and sweet, suave berry jam flavors. Finishes with supple tannins and very good length.

Garnet with brownish robe. Medium-bodied, earthy and red fruits on the nose that followed through on the palate. Long and sublime. Probably at its peak right now.

(Cuvee Unique Reserve) Brilliant medium ruby red hued with thick almost colorless legs. The initial funkiness blows off to reveal sweet buttered strawberry and warm spices. Racy acidity keeps the fruit in check and goes reasonably well with the wine?s light to moderate tannins. Only decent length ? frankly this wine is disappointing in the context of the vintage. The Cuv?e Unique is a barrel selection cuv?e from North Berkeley Imports ?North Berkeley even provides the winery with the used Burgundy barrels to age the wine. It is about two thirds Grenache with the remaining third consisting primarily of Syrah and Mourv?dre. It is sourced from vines over 80 years in age. Unfined and unfiltered.
