This wine is still youthful and developing, but we couldn't help ourselves. Excellent fruit/oak nose that opened up nicely with airing. Ripe fruit -- plums/prunes, cherry, cassis, licorice. Silky texture, satisfying, full mid-range -- both Turley trademarks. Seems to have slightly higher acidity than the 2000, and a hint of hotness that may mellow with another year in the bottle. - WB team 2004-04-16
