Solid. Very friendly with lots of interest and complexity. Rich and plush. Always a favorite!

Dark ruby. Medium-minus intensity with hints of blackberry, cherry, cranberry, and a hint of forest floor. Mouthwatering acidity that accentuates the cranberry and red cherry notes on the palate. Blackberry, bramble, and a hint of tobacco. Nice balance...not over-extracted. Could still use another 3+ years.

Aged well, with nice structure, relaxed tannins and a nice earthy minerality.

Not really showing any age drop off in the color. This is a nice wine. Tannins have softened but still has a little zip almost how a really fresh cigar dances on your tongue.

Good solid fruit, but not layered enough for the best vintage of decade. Lots of black and blue fruit, needs more secondary notes.

Much more balanced than an '06 opened last month. This is in a nice place. Only the subdued nose kept it from being outstanding.
