Expected more fruit. A bit short on finish. 2009 blew away tasting side by side.

Briary reds & blacks. Finish a touch short....but all in all - solid juice. Tasted along side 2008. 2009 smoked it.

Very aromatic with red fruit-cherry and ripe strawberry. Plum. Eucalyptus, cinnamon,nutmeg, anise. Perfume and violet. M+ acid, body and tannin. Fruit forward and rich but lean on the palate. Long finish. Excellent!

Definitely a bit more old world. Not overbearing, but a nice bit of tannin and acidity that carried through. Would be great with some short rib right about now. #pnv15 #atlaspeak
