Full-bodied powerful with a broad savory mouthfeel a multi-layered texture and no hardness in the finish this wine has evolved beautifully and can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years. Previously recommended: 2002 Proprietary Red (100). Fax (707) 967-8918

Dark plush intense and concentrated with a deep core of ripe currant blackberry wild berry and cassis. The well-integrated oak has a roasted coffee flavor and though this is quite tannic the tannins are ripe. Ends with a long persistent finish. Best from 2008 through 2015. –JL

Bright saturated ruby. Complex superripe nose hints at chocolate smoke dried herbs soy sauce and leather along with a dried fruit character suggesting some surmaturite Rich broad and fine-grained but much less sweet than the 2002. A firm spine of acidity gives this structured wine a slightly spiky quality today. Finishes with granular tongue-dusting tannins that are less pliant than those of the 2002.
