($120) Good deep ruby-red. Pure, vibrant nose offers blackberry, violet, minerals and licorice, lifted by a minty nuance. Densely packed but juicy, with lovely precision to its flavors of black fruits, mint, minerals and clove. Very spicy and very young. Wonderfully ripe without any loss of vibrancy. The very sweet tannins are thoroughly enrobed by the wine's sheer density of material. This spreads out impressively over the palate, finishing with terrific length and energy. A major success in 2005.Author: Stephen Tanzer
