Over three-fourths of it came from the Alexander Mountain estate of Jess Jackson and the rest from Chalk Hill Knights Valley and a tiny bit from Bennett Valley. This dense purple-colored effort exhibits notes of licorice creme de cassis plum sauce violets and truffles. Full-bodied with magnificent density overall equilibrium stunning purity sweet but abundant tannin and a fabulous finish this profound wine remains a baby at age ten. Give it another 5-6 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 35-40+ years. It is very French in style even though one could argue that this level of concentration can only be achieved by a handful of wines from Pomerol and St.-Emilion.

Bright ruby-red. Roasted red berries, tobacco, game, coffee and animal fur on the nose. Lush, layered and sweet, with sexy flavors of roasted berries and game. Finishes uncompromisingly dry, with building, ripe tannins.
