Dark ruby red. Blackberries, pepper, bacon fat, mushrooms with a hint of black licorice and green vegetables. Medium body, alcohol, acid and smooth, velvet tannins. Same flavor on the palate as on the nose. Medium plus finish. Very balanced with medium plus finish.

Rhonda really likes, but only buy on chairman select sale for $20. A good wine to bring to people.

2002: Packed with concentrated fruit, not jammy, but strong core of fruit. Still in ascent, with a nervy licorice bite on the finish. Happy to revisit over the years.

Still holding together quite nicely after 19 years.  Seamless, and mouth filling. Impressed.

Very stereotypical Cali Red to me with big “sweet” fruit. Okay and rich. Needed to be a bit fresher (i. e. More acid) to my palate. Would be a good restaurant wine I think.
