This 2008 was a real treat to try. Dusty and musty, like an old library book. Floral arrangements mixed with dark earth, black cherries, and lots of spice. Jill said: "tastes like Hogwarts." Spot on.

Very classic chianti, sour cherry and a bit of cedar. Tannins that are pleasantly grippy but not overpowering. I would wait 3 or so years to see where this goes because it has longevity and lift. For an old school wine lover

Close to perfect for a CCR. Layered, complex. Cherry, damp earth. Fully mature. Long finish. Loved this.
