Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
88

Some leathery, astringent tannin kept me from scoring this wine higher. It is certainly extracted, with an impressively saturated ruby/purple color, noticeable smoky new oak, thick, juicy blackberry and currant flavors, but high tannins that possess a certain astringency. As I indicated in my tasting notes last year, in the conflict between fruit and tannin, history usually favors the tannin. I do no see any reason to change that thought. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018

A very attractive nose of smoke and cedar, though with breathing it begins to lose some vigor in the glass. The palate is quite gamey and rich with a noticeable metallic element. Some astringency on the finish. This ought to have been much better. Tasted November 2004.
