"...a beauty—which augers very well for this year's vineyard-designate bottlings. Offering up aromas of black cherries, cassis, sweet spices and subtle notes of fruitcake, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and generous, with an ample core of ripe but succulent fruit, melting tannins and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5 or 6 years to profit from its youthful exuberance."
