93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2007
($250) Medium ruby-red. High-toned aromas of mocha, meat and dried fruits, with whiffs of tar and beefsteak tomato. Sweet verging on confectionery, and conveying less energy today than the Herb Lamb. Impressively concentrated, thick, creamy wine-"like an elixir," notes winemaker Allison Tauziet. The crop level of less than two tons per acre was the lowest ever here, due in part to dehydration of the grapes. This bottle did not show quite the verve I found in the 2003 release. Finishes with building tannins.
