Out of a .375. I was concerned as the cork crumbled as if it were made out of sand. Filtered multiple times as I tried to remove cork bits. Very spicy and floral on the nose . In the mouth a medley of red fruit and herbs . Very lively acids and almost resolved tannins. Not sure time will do much for the palate but it might add additional complexity to the nose.

Drinking nicely, wonderful late afternoon wine. Nice and crisp, light overripe fruit (red) amazing nose with very intense dry herbs

I enjoyed this wine over a year ago and just opened my second bottle and it's even better!

Very rich, still tight. Bigger fruit than the 2006, and bigger structure. Prominent tannins.
