Clear medium ruby with lightly pigmented slow forming legs. The nose is clean with with medium intensity and aromas of black fruit (blackberry, black cherry, slight aromas of cedar and subtle floral character. The wine is developing. The wine is dry with medium alcohol, medium plus slightly astringent tannins, medium acidity and medium body. The finish is medium. The wine has flavors of black fruit as above. The wine is good and ready to drink now but may develop interesting tertiary character over another 3 - 5 years. The fruit will probably fade soon.

Tasted 9/14 at Daglio house. This wine is beginning to break down. Nothing on mid-pallet and short aftertaste. Weak. Fading fruit. Very disappointing.

Plenty of tannins and some good fruit hiding behind the tannins, leave it another year or two, and hope the tannins die down and the fruit remains

Very dark, very opaque, a lot or different aromas (tobacco, coffee?), very different than other 2004 we tasted. It is also fruity (red) and has a bit of very pleasant acidity, medium bodied and some nice tannins which need another year in bottle.

Not up to par from its predecessor (2003), but no slouch either. Yet another candidate for the pure fruit category, almost reminiscent of a ripe rendition of Spanish Grenache. Fig, raspberry jam, and cassis flavors are well shaped, but without the depth and complexity of this estate?s best efforts

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
