Wine Profile
93 POINTS Vinous, (made mostly from a 1972 planting at Sagemoor): Dark ruby-red. Reticent, brooding scents of blackberry, cassis, musky dark chocolate, licorice and flinty minerality, with brighter notes of blueberry and spices emerging with aeration. Highly concentrated and fine-grained, with its ripe dark chocolate and sexy oak flavors nicely buffered by the creaminess and depth of the old-vines dark berry fruit. (This was aged in 100% new French oak but comes across as less obviously oaky than the other reds here.) According to winemaker Mott, the older blocks are more nutrient-deficient, and some lots can ferment their sugars until February or even March. Spreads out horizontally to saturate the palate and build slowly, with fine-grained tannins dusting the front teeth. While this wine has the material to age well, it's also balanced and inviting from the start. -Stephen Tanzer
