Raspberry and plum aromas are forward yet softened by a thick block of sweet oak. In the mouth, the wine shows serious ripeness, a bold cherry flavor, and raw but healthy tannins. With char and zest throughout, this is one of the better '02s you'll encounter. Imported by Selected Estates of Europe Ltd.
