Blackberry, strawberry compote and blueberry pie give this vintage a very prominent fruit character,
but there is the darkness of tea leaf, humid forest, and a feral quality, like the fur of an animal or the
nape of a neck. Clove and cardamom are warm spice notes that give the impression of sweetness to
balance the firm presence of ripe tannins.
"Deceptively concentrated, smooth and soothing, ripe and fleshy, with dark fruit, black licorice, mineral and fresh earth flavors. Full-bodied, it gains complexity and depth on the finish. Drink now through 2014."
Absolutely fantastic! Seemed to drop off a good bit after the first day though. Immediately began looking around to buy a case but almost impossible to find. Tried the 07 and do not like nearly as well.
