Such a powerful mouthful of wine that after swallowing, it’s almost hard to talk. Explosively aromatic, with jam, tar, licorice and exotic spices, it leads with concentrated fruit, then follows with a sledgehammer of polished tannins that somehow dissolve on the finish, where the fruit reemerges like a rainbow. With a slab of well-aged, chargrilled beef–paradise. Drink now through 2005. 450 cases made.
Stored in a climate controlled cellar on its side in the dark at 55 degrees F and 60% humidity since purchase.
