($65; a blend of 40% syrah, 32% cabernet sauvignon, 15% petit verdot, 8% cabernet franc and 5% merlot) Deep, bright ruby. Superripe but vibrant nose combines black fruits, dark chocolate, violet and meat. Distinctly liqueur-like in the mouth, with superconcentrated flavors of kirsch, violet pastille, menthol and chocolate. A powerful, compellingly rich wine that's sweet but dry in the way of so many Napa Valley bottlings from very ripe years. Finishes with big, broad tannins and excellent length.Author: Stephen Tanzer
