Deeper red than the Quarles Harris '97 that preceeded this wine in the tasting. Soft and restrained nose, less assertive than the QH, of blackberries and blackberry juice. Sweet entry with an immediate presence of ripe blackberries. Tannins grab the mouth and cheeks but there is a love;y midpalate complexity from the different layers of fruit. Aftertaste is faint at first but suddenly comes distinctly back into focus. 90/100. Tasted 2/11/06 after 1 hour in the decanter.
