($60) Medium red with an amber rim. Scented nose shows dried cherry, dried flowers, brown spices, licorice and menthol. Large-scaled, rich and deep; a step up in texture and richness from the foregoing 2003s. Layered and deep Barolo, with slightly exotic flavors of dried cherry and marzipan. And yet there's something almost elegant about this big, warm wine. Finishes with building, sweet tannins and impressive persistence. Very impressive for the year.Author: Stephen Tanzer
