Produced from the oldest vines on this lovely Saratoga property with an averge age of 43 years this is a prodigious bottle of juice. Opaque purple, the port-like chocolate aromas are huge on opening. Cardamon, cinnamon, and vanilla bean combine with high purple plums, and brite cherry flavors that almost are overwhelming. Still has fine tannins that need resolving, it needs another 2-4 to evolve. The finish is close to a legendary 5-lapper. Killer juice. 95/96. 44 by the box. No alc. WW
