($120; includes 3% petit verdot; mostly from Meteor Vineyard in Coombsville) Deep ruby-red. Cassis, camphor and licorice on the rather brooding nose, with a piquant hint of minerality. Then almost shockingly supple and sweet, but with the stuffing and energy to support a leisurely evolution in bottle. A hint of tobacco leaf lifts this very suave wine, which needs time to express itself. Finishes with sweet tannins and lovely length. Part of this wine was fermented in barrel and part in concrete tanks.
