It's essential to have a toothbrush handy after drinking this wine as it definitely has tooth-staining density. This is a heavy-duty wine with an extremely chewy texture and a boatload of chalky tannin, like a big young Petite Sirah. Excellent nose and flavors of spicy black raspberry, licorice and milk chocolate. If the tannin resolves itself, I will have been stingy with this rating. - HK 2004-04-24
