($80; from rocky red clay soil) Full red-ruby. Aromas of licorice, graphite, tobacco, minerals and fresh herbs on the nose, along with some sweet oak. Then supple but slightly edgy in the mouth, with a musky quality and a slight greenness to the medicinal black cherry and currant flavors. Finishes with building, slightly gritty tannins. This boasts very good material but today the wine's 75% new oak component seems a bit overbearing.
