($285; from an uplifted river bottom rich in cobblestones, in an area behind Phelps and Heitz known as Spring Valley) Deep ruby. Superripe aromas of plum, blueberry and violet. Like liquid silk on the palate, conveying powerful early sweetness and an utterly seamless quality to its dark fruit flavors. Impressively broad wine, finishing with substantial tannins and rising length. But comes across as less complex today than the young Melbury.
