This is Eric Prissette's most impressive vintage to date. The wine has developed beautifully in cask, and out of bottle is a gorgeously seductive, full-bodied, heady, perfumed style of wine, with a dense purple color and a sweet nose of blackberries, cassis, licorice, coffee, and toast. Layered, deep, and chewy, with considerable body, noticeable structure, and both muscle and delineation, this is a large-scaled Rol Valentin that should age effortlessly, yet be approachable in two to three years. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018. P.S. It is a blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Robert Parker
