($400; bottled entirely in magnums; aged in 50% new and 50% once-used barriques Bright, full ruby. Exotic berry cocktail of a nose, with a strongly spicy character. Creamy, dense and deep, with penetrating berry flavors complicated by earth, spices and bitter chocolate. Creamy-sweet and rich, finishing with substantial, lush, oak-driven tannins and excellent length. I might have picked this blind as a cross between California cabernet and zinfandel. But it's very impressive red wine.
