Ripe and plump, nicely polished to show off the plum and berry fruit, which shows more up front than on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

Delicious, savory, dark wine with plum, cassis and brown sugar spice. Smooth, round tannins pumped up with big, black fruits. Finish is long and full, showing some toast from its 26 months in oak.

From the collector’s vintage, this wine, aged 26 months, is deep and densely colored with rich nuances of chocolate and mint. Very good now and possibly better in the short term future.
