($65) Bright medium ruby. Aromatic nose combines blackberry, black cherry, espresso and violet. Tightly wound, even a bit tart, owing to strong acids and rather dominant oakiness. Has less flesh to support its oak than the 2001 merlot, with the result that the tannins come across as chalkier and considerably more dominant today.
