Partly owned by New York resident Peter M. F. Sichel, this is a property that has considerably improved. This 2003 has richness, some good new wood flavors and and an open character. The fruit is packed with ripe, black flavors and there is softness to the aftertaste that is immediately appealing. Imported by Parliament Wine Co.
