It was aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak. There are 3400 cases produced most of it sold through the winery's mailing list and the rest in a handful of markets. Opaque purple-colored it delivers a remarkable array of aromas including pain grille violets pencil lead truffle Asian spices black currant and blueberry. This leads to a lustrous layered velvet-textured wine with gobs of spicy ripe black fruits and beautifully integrated oak tannin and acidity. The long pure finish goes on for well over a minute. It will evolve for a decade and drink well through 2045. I was able to retaste the 2001 2002 and 2003 vintages and can only say that Monsieur Rovani's notes and scores are right on the bulls-eye.

Medium ruby. Aromas of cassis black rasperry smoke mocha coffee and tobacco; still a bit suppressed by SO2 Sweeter and fatter today than the 2003 with a distinct chocolatey flavor but in its muted state this lacks the high notes of the earlier vintage and shows less obvious spine. But the terrific breadth of the wine is already obvious and the finish is pliant and long with building ripe tannins.

Velvety and generous. A supple insinuating style with coffee and bittersweet chocolate accents around a beautifully contained core of ripe currant plum and cherry fruit. Has great presence balance and harmony. The finish... Velvety and generous. A supple insinuating style with coffee and bittersweet chocolate accents around a beautifully contained core of ripe currant plum and cherry fruit. Has great presence balance and harmony. The finish expands impressively against a veil of firm tannins and well-integrated oak flavors. Best from 2010 through 2020. 3400 cases made. –HS
