The 2008 Footbolt shows off a brooding nose of dark red cherries, rhubarb
and cardamon spices, with underlying earthiness. The generous palate is
well-structured, with juicy blood plums and mulberries on the mid palate,
rounded out by cinnamon spice from seasoned oak and balanced acidity to
keep the ripe fruit in check. Firm, powdery tannins provide a memorable finish.
