($62) Bright red-ruby color. Explosive aromas of raspberry, smoked meat and minerals, with hints of dried fruits; still a bit reduced. Suave and sweet on entry, then high-toned and expressive in the middle palate, with flavors of red berries, game, smoke and pepper. Lovely harmonious acidity contributes to the wine's inner-mouth aromatic character. Finishes with very sweet tannins and impressive spicy length. Proprietor/winemaker Roman Bratasuik has been picking his fruit a bit earlier since vintage 2001 to get fresher fruit flavors, but these tannins are still thoroughly ripe.Author: Stephen Tanzer
