($125; always from the same 2.3-acre parcel within Hudson Vineyard) Saturated ruby. Knockout Northern Rhone-like aromas of raspberry, bacon fat, minerals, cocoa powder, pepper and licorice. Superconcentrated, saline and distinctly dry, with flavors of berry liqueur, dark chocolate and licorice. Almost painfully intense and a bit clenched today. But this expanded impressively with extended time in the open bottle. In its flavors, texture and structure, this is midway between Cote-Rotie and Hermitage.
