($45; 50% whole clusters; from soil rich in friable rock, quartz and schist that Guthrie describes as "like the Cote Brune") Saturated ruby. Highly complex nose of blackberry, violet, gunflint and brown spices. Primary, sappy and sweet, with the flavors of black fruits, licorice and violet showing impressive energy and definition. Brisk and firm but pliant, and not at all hard. Already showing lovely incipient complexity, but this will be even better for a couple years of patience.Author: Stephen Tanzer
