($175; 60% garnacha and 40% syrah) Glass-staining ruby. A wild, highly aromatic bouquet displays raspberry, blackberry, violet and spicecake, with a strong mineral element that gains strength with air. Juicy, penetrating red and dark fruit flavors are given depth by a note of bitter chocolate and include strong mineral spine. The spice and floral notes resonate on a very long, sappy, pure finish. This wine benefits enormously from aeration, but there's no way I'd open a bottle for at least another six years. (Eric Solomon Selections, Charlotte, NC)
