Fresh floral and berry aromas are firm, ripe, intense and delicate on the palate, under- rather than overstated, with taut wild berry, mineral, sage and underbrush, finishing with a persistent mix of mineral and berry. *Collectibles* (JL)  (7/2010)

Slightly downgraded from previous tastings, the 2005 shares a cool-climate austerity with the 2001, but seems slightly richer, fuller and denser. It possesses a deep ruby/plum color along with aromas of loamy soil, forest floor, fresh mushrooms, black currants, raspberries and sweet kirsch. Medium to full-bodied and complex with moderate tannins and a firmer, overall structure and intensity, this wine appears to be several years away from full maturity. It should last and evolve for another 10-15+ years. (RP)  (6/2014)
