International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 144

($85; includes 2.5% each cabernet franc and merlot) Good bright medium ruby. Musky, ripe, complex aromas of plum syrup, smoke, licorice, tobacco leaf and chocolate, all lifted by a strong rocky element. Suave on entry, then silky, perfumed and vibrant in the middle palate, with black fruit flavors lifted by a wet stone minerality and a floral element. Wonderfully silky and sophisticated wine, finishing with very suave tannins. From a vineyard planted on pure fractured rock at an altitude of 1,800 feet.

Infanticide, I know, but needed to check in. Gorgeous nose of blue/black fruits and flowers (classic mountain nose, really), palate is a wall of tannin right now. Left 3/4 bottle for day 2. On day 2 the tannin was still very much there but the fruit was intense and pure. Decent acidity too. This is a great wine in the making but it needs serious time. Will try the regular bottling soon for comparison. 95 based on potential.
