($69) Deep red. Exotically perfumed nose offers a wild array of dark berry, cherry, incense and floral scents. Spicy red and dark berry flavors are refreshingly bitter but became sweeter with air, gaining a white pepper and baking spice character. Really stains the palate, finishing with outstanding cling and length. I was looking for oakiness but didn't find it. Curran noted that she's as meticulous as possible with her winemaking, leaving as little as possible to chance. As she put it: "Spontaneity isn't a good idea when you're making red expensive wine."

Site Blog: The Wine Forum 2005 Ten showing nicely after an hour open. Good cola, red cherry, rhubarb and spicy plum. Finally has settles down and mellowed out into a beautiful Pinot Noir. Not a Burgundy, but that's ok as it should not be, but should be California.

Drinking beautifully now, with New World fruit but Burgundian aromatics. Really good.

Luscious, balanced, sophisticated, complex integrated tannins totally masking the 14.9% alcohol. A great drink
