Not often we have this. As @Carl Fischer suggested, its style straddles Napa and Bordeaux. Soft oak and maraschino cherries on the nose. The palate is nuanced, delineated and textured. Subtle blueberries mix with a hint of roasted coffee beans. A beautiful example that was elbowed out of the limelight by other great wines. Thank you @Carl Fischer for sharing this beauty.

Dark ruby red with lighter edges. Dark nose with layers of cocoa, a bit dirty, earthy and dark berries. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and full bodied. Elegant palate with tons of dark notes. Layers of black cherries, cassis, dark earth and tobacco leaves. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2022.

Mature, elegant, harmonious wine that has aged well. Distinctive tertiary notes in the wine give this a definite Old World personality despite having that classic core of fruit even restrained wines take on in Napa. I bet this was singing on its 20th Birthday.

Expressive Bordeaux like nose. On the palate very resolved tannins complimenting secondary and tertiary flavors. If you have them drink them.
