Dark and opaque. Not showing much age. Black cherries and plums in the nose. Some pencil shavings. Rich and luscious fruit. Not overly complex. One dimensional but very enjoyable.

Young, bombastic, and what you expect from this wine. However, it has a lot of time left and will be even better in 5-10 years. Wine of the year in 2003 from Spectator and it holds up.

@Kirk Alexander @David L @Ron R @Joe Lucca @Mike Rowe Kirk was gracious enough to uncork this badass wine. It was wine of the year in 2002!
It is in a perfect place right now. Firing on all cylinders. It was evident on the nose, Palate and immense finish. Truly spectacular. Thanks Kirk!!!
