    90 The second wine, which now is a cuvee of 800-1,200 or so cases, is called Altagracia, and the 2004 exhibits scorched earth, hints of charcoal, black currant, licorice, and some spicy oak with distinctive elegance and terroir character, medium body, and nice, long fruit in the finish. It is meant to be drunk earlier than the Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, but it shares some of the same characteristics.

    90 (66% cabernet sauvignon, 14% merlot and 10% each cabernet franc and petit verdot; aged entirely in new oak) Good red-ruby. Aromas of raspberry, smoke, gravel and nutty oak. Smooth in the middle palate, with flavors of plum, mocha and tobacco and nicely integrated acidity. The building tannins are a bit hard-edged, but this second wine, from young vines and "less-good lots," offers attractive sweetness, good life and firm structure.
