($150) Good deep ruby-red. Black plum, coffee, mocha and exotic underbrush on the nose, complemented by toasty oak. Suave, firm and distinctive, with Graves-like flavors of plum, redcurrant, hot rocks, gravel, Cuban cigar tobacco (Montecristo #2?) and fresh herbs. Not thick or supersweet; in fact, there's a delicacy about this wine. Helen Turley planted this vineyard and made the 2004. Current winemaker Philippe Melka describes this Soda Canyon site (south of Stags Leap) as "a less extreme, more temperate climate, and an area where the climate has less of an impact on the vintage." Finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins.
