($200) Bright medium red. Sweet, seductive nose melds raspberry, smoky underbrush, pungent minerality and sexy oak tones. Silky-sweet and lush, with a downright seamless quality to the palate-saturating red fruit, earth, spice and mineral flavors. As plush as this is, it maintains a light touch straight through to the long finish.

Expensive! Nice wine, though I'm not at all convinced it's worth 800 a case. Very rich and flattering. Too much dry oak on the finish.
