Complex and stylish, with bags of ripe blackfruit and coffee flavors. This wine is bone dry, yet exhibits a lovely sweet
character on the palate, with some eucalyptus notes. The finish is long and firm.
Will age well for 5 – 10 years.
"Rich but precise, with a gorgeous beam of mulled black currant fruit backed by fig cake, loam and mint notes. The long, velvety finish stays well-focused. Drink now through 2014. 500 cases imported. "
"Full medium red-ruby. Cassis, licorice, wild herbs and spices on the inviting nose. Then ripe and sweet in the mouth, with good juicy definition and lift to the cassis and spice flavors. Finishes with sweet, well-buffered tannins and lovely persistence. Always an ageworthy wine but this vintage also offers plenty of early appeal."
International Wine Cellar
"Drawn from tightly planted vines in decomposed granite, some more than 20 years old,this wine achieves great fruit concentration while maintaining a beautifull herbals cabernet character. The finish is a ccented by and iron-like minerality and supple fruit tannins."

BIG and broad like the Mississippi but almost as bland
