($125; cabernet sauvignon with 13% merlot and 4% petit verdot) Good deep ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry liqueur, smoke, gravel and violet. Superripe, chewy and sweet, with a Graves-like silkiness of texture to the flavors of currant, blackberry, minerals and dark chocolate. Very ripe wine, yet it retains an elegant quality. The velvety tannins arrive late, reaching the front teeth and allowing the black fruit and menthol finishing flavors to expand. As in recent years, this comes from Jim Gamble's vineyard next to Spottswoode.

Offers wonderful purity of flavor, exhibiting ripe plum, cherry and blackberry fruit shaded by light toasty oak. Elegant and concentrated, this ends with a delicate mix of fruit, oak and fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
