    Gorgeous nose of black currant preserves and freshly roasted coffee, with a powerful yet very silky palate of cassis, plum, blackberry, loam, mineral and dark chocolate flavors that glide through a superlong finish. Don't be deceived by its seeming accessibility though--there's some iron-clad structure underneath for the long haul as well. 13,500 cases made.

    This season, wintertime monopolised most of the rainfall, which showered through mainly June and July. Wintertime began with low temperatures but got increasingly warmer until it turned into a fairly temperate spring, providing good conditions for the vines to begin their vegetative cycle. Summer brought more good weather and very sparse precipitations, allowing for clusters to fully ripen.Blackberry and cherry, vanilla, smoked bacon, lengthy and expressive with aromatic finish, concentrated fruit, high acid and alcohol and plenty of bottle age to come. Meaty, earthy, ripe - delicious.ÿ (RH)

    Nice cab. The nose is intriguing, dark and complex. The taste isn't quite as remarkable but it's delicious. This should be consumed in the next year or two; it's at it's likely peak, in my view.

    Not too Good,not at the level it should. Somehow monolithic, not much in nose, little in mouth and lesser in finish. I gave it 30-45min to let air in but never opened. A recent 2005 was much, much better!

    Singing: Cassis and delicious black fruit on the nose and palate. Medium finish. This has a lot of life left.
