BEAUTY. Not the Big Bang araujo, but this is the closest and best to a second label I can see. Still young! Vibrant. Reminds me of a Bordeaux styled napa like verite.

2000 vintage. Doesn't feel past the peak to me - it's in a beautiful place right now. Very elegant; rich, smooth, balanced. Much better than how the 1999 and 2002 are drinking (fwiw).
