($65; 52% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 18% petit verdot) Full ruby-red. Nose dominated by sour cherry. Dense, sweet and lush but less complex than the Dr. Crane. Stuffed with raspberry and milk chocolate flavors but more tannic today, with a slight youthful toughness on the back. "A Right Bank-style blend from disparate sources," says Hirby.

The 2005 The Tempest (52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 18% Petit Verdot) offers attractive aromas of blueberry jam, cassis, and a creamy, espresso/chocolatey character. This opulent, round, hedonistic, voluptuously-textured, super-pure 2005 will provide pleasure over the next 12-15 years.
