    Bottle (6)
    "Crimson with smudgy rim. The particularly complex nose comes in a cloud. As though rich, ripe Pinot just rubbed itself over the palate! Actually very youthful with marked fine tannins but no excess of acidity. Lots of zest and life - really racy. Such a fine filigree texture." (18pts JR, July 2007)

    "A gorgeously spicy and seductively complex nose that is still quite primary and the fruit spectrum is almost completely black followed by tight, primary, intense, structured flavors that at the moment don't quite seem to have adequate buffering fat. This finishes with class, grace and fine length though there is a dry edginess and it is not clear that this will ever completely harmonize. A very good rather than genuinely great effort." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec. 2005)
