Ultra complex with terrific intensity. Red currant, black cherry jam, boysenberry, a subtle hint of cured meats, exotic spices and a gorgeous, long and balanced finish.

Dark scarlet to the rims, almost opaque. Masculine, meaty nose. Notes of smoked meats, tart raspberries, herbs, wet soil, blueberries and some white pepper. Big and rich in the mouth. Youthful and plummy. Has some heat. Tannins mostly resolved. Puckering acidity and structure kinda overwhelms the fruit.

Hype around the 1998, 1999 brings the funk, high praise for the 2001 but 2000 is my vintage.

Dark ruby. Brooding and heavy fruit with herbs and still some tannin. Nicely made wine. Needs more age. Great to compare against the 90... Different style.

Still good. Though heading downhill. Rich and toothsome.
