"A lovely wine that stresses fruit, fruit and more fruit. Dark in color, with a super marriage of plum, blackberry, truffle, licorice and cassis, it has a ripe, sweet midpalate and massive but fairly supple tannins. Full-bodied, it should improve with age and turn into a real gem. Best from 2002 through 2005. 830 cases made"
