Sonoma Valley, California, USA. 14.3%
I lost a bottle of the 2001 to airport security but was able to buy this in Cincinnati (for a hefty price though).
Odd sulpher like (reductive ?) burnt match aromas. Clears a little with breathing. But noticeable on the palate too. Rich wine without strident varietal character. Moderate acidity but it carries its alcohol (average for California) well. Toasty French oak in the background, quite well handled.
Overall though this bottle or wine must be faulty. Not enough to make it undrinkable, but I can’t enthuse about the experience.
