This large, 132-acre estate is making great wines today. This 2003 is up with the best, full of flavor, fruit, richness and layers of sweet licorice, black plums and wood. Spice, coffee and chocolate flavors complete a complex blend. With its dense, dusty tannins, it is certainly ageworthy. Imported by Bercut-Vandervoort & Co. Cellar Selection.
