I drank as much opf the 2007 as I could get my hands on. It was a wonderfully pleasant everyday drinking wine. RP hit the 2007 on the nose! The 2008 was very disappointing. It was much harsher and didn't dramtacially improve even after opening for 30 minutes. If you like the 2008, get your hands on the 2007!
I'm not a wine expert. I like big, bold wines and this delivers. It's unique in that it's very spicy. It can stand up to the any food but I enjoy just sipping it. Excellent wine at an excellent price.
Earthy & Spicy
This is a great spicy red at the price. Black pepper and black cherries came through for me on the tongue.
