Not the variety Dehlinger is best known for, but still a delicious wine from one of the best wineries in California. Perfumed, very Bordeaux-like, complex nose. Extremely well-balanced, deep flavors of bittersweet chocolate, cassis, dark berries, smoke, oak. Still firm with some tannin in the finish to shed. Will continue to improve. - HK 2000-05-08
