Deep purple-colored, with a stunning array of cassis, blackberries, toasted spice, dried herbs, and bouquet garni, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full body, a seamless, elegant texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's one of the wines in the vintage and, while already beautiful today, has a good 10-15 years of longevity. It doesn't have the sheer weight and richness of the 2015 yet is more elegant and balanced.

Displays powerful aromas of dark berry and cherry liqueur, Indian spices, and incense, with a smoky nuance that builds as the wine opens up. Fleshy and broad on the palate but surprisingly lithe, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a hint of candied flowers. Finishes seamless and impressively long, with an echo of florality and supple tannins that add shape and subtle grip. -- Josh Raynolds

This has a dark and intense core of warmed fig, boysenberry and blackberry fruit that rolls through in wave after wave, letting light anise, apple wood and violet notes fill in the background.

Offers a suave feel through the finish. Drink now through 2028. — J.M.

There's good depth of juniper and blackberry, not overburdened by oak, with plenty of scrubby herbs in the background. Full-bodied, full of fruit and ripe tannin, struck through with high levels of juicy acidity. You can't help but be impressed by its boldness and intensity.

It's still a terrific wine, with attractive notes of cracked pepper, red berries and black olive, ample weight and concentration on the palate and a rich, velvety mouthfeel. It just seems a bit earthy and slightly lacking energy on the espresso-tinged finish.- JC
