Another winner from this extremely reliable Zin producer. Inky color, serious blackberry flavors and a touch of Claret-like dark currants. Chewy mouth texture that will probably soften with age. Tasted against the '99 Rafanelli, this one struck us as not quite as full or complex at this point, but that could change with a little bottle age. - WB Team 2003-07-11
