($125) Full medium ruby. Smoky, lower-toned aromas of black raspberry, mocha, earth and tobacco, lifted by a pungent minty quality and a whiff of resin. Here, too, the acidity is quite pronounced today, and with moderate mid-palate flesh and sweetness the current impression is a bit ungenerous. Finishes quite tight, with a slight sharpness to the acidity. These 2005s may well be in an awkward stage today, and my scores may come to look overly conservative, but in any event they should not be opened anytime soon.

From Paradise Hills Vineyard.Sumptuous nose and some tea-leaf refreshment but a little austere still. Lift and life ? not so dissimilar from the Viader Proprietary red 2004 tasted immediately beforehand.

Deep, concentrated pomerol like, but on steroids.
