($80) Inky ruby. Deeper and more brooding than the Bugay, with ripe boysenberry and smoked meat aromas and a slow-building licorice quality. Slow to open, offering chewy dark berry compote and bitter cherry flavors and solid tannic grip. With air, this gave up pungent floral and incense qualities, suggesting that patience will be required for this to show its best. This vineyard was called Wild Iris through the 2005 vintage. (JR)
