“($80) Deep red. Reticent nose hints at blackberry and black pepper, with a slight hint of volatile acidity. Sweet and spicy on the palate, showcasing black pepper, licorice and mineral flavors. Seems slightly less dense than previous vintages, with the acid, tannin and fruit components not yet in perfect harmony. Perhaps best today on the persistent, savory finish. This will undoubtedly improve in bottle, but I doubt it will reach the same heights as the superb 2003 or 2004.” Ian D’Agata
