Smooth rich ripe yet fresh it caresses the palate delivering blackberry wet earth and sweet tannins in a clean package. Very long finish is redolent of smoke toast and grilled meat. Best from 2002 through 2010. –PM

This dense purple-colored wine offers a gorgeous nose of blackberry fruit intertwined with cassis minerals dried herbs and sweet foresty scents. Rich medium to full-bodied with beautifully integrated acidity and tannin. The fruit is gloriously ripe and rich but the wine is accessible. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2025.Importers: Langdon Shiverick Cleveland OH; tel. (216) 861-6800 and Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant Berkeley CA; tel. (510) 524-1524
