Day-by-day this wine gets better and better. Each time we open a bottle here we are finding new flavors and new depth. Very smooth and tantalizing. This has been a real sleeper and just started to open up at the first of this year.

Dark garnet in color, this wine smells of crushed herbs, graphite, tobacco and cherry. In the mouth, juicy cherry, cedar and graphite flavors sit under a nice gauzy blanket of tannins and wonderful brightness thanks to excellent acidity. Good length, with dried herbs and flowers in the long finish, coupled with a dark earthy rumble.
Score: Between 9 and 9.5

Dark ruby color; still young, highly structured, with leathery tannins and mineral-laced oak, but encouraging notes of plum and cherry compote. Give it three or four more years.
