Wonderful flavors of dark fruits, minerals and licorice comprise this brawny red. There's also a nice toasty element, like roasted nuts, which is probably a result of new oak aging that brings added complexity. The alcohol is in balance. This fine wine will be best enjoyed in 2003 and beyond.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
