($55; includes a bit of syrah and cabernet) Bright red-ruby. Sexy, slightly grapey aromas of redcurrant, violet and cedar. Bright acids give freshness and cut to the berry, floral and spice flavors. Finishes with a suggestion of sweet chocolate and lively acidity. Chris Figgins notes that this wine now sees very little new oak, and that it's aged in puncheons rather than barriques Two thousand five, he added, was a year that brought very good physiological ripeness without huge sugars; the 2004s here tend to be higher in alcohol.

The 2005 Sangiovese sets the standard for all domestic efforts with this Tuscan grape. With 13% Syrah and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, this dark ruby-colored wine offers up a lovely perfume of red cherry and raspberry with a hint of vanilla in the background. This is followed by a sweetly fruited, spicy wine with excellent breadth, a bracing, vibrant palate-feel, and a long, pure finish. This unique expression can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-12 years.
