A superb effort, the dense purple-colored 2008 offers a beautiful nose of new saddle leather, kirsch, black currants, licorice and spice box, medium to full body, ripe tannins, a luscious texture and a long, layered... A superb effort, the dense purple-colored 2008 offers a beautiful nose of new saddle leather, kirsch, black currants, licorice and spice box, medium to full body, ripe tannins, a luscious texture and a long, layered mouthfeel and finish. Sadly, this beauty is very limited in availability. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

Bright medium ruby. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of cassis, blueberry, licorice and minerals. Juicy, fine-grained and surprisingly tight, with lovely sappy energy to the tight core of dark berry and licorice... Bright medium ruby. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of cassis, blueberry, licorice and minerals. Juicy, fine-grained and surprisingly tight, with lovely sappy energy to the tight core of dark berry and licorice flavors. This chalky, precise wine boasts excellent chewy depth. Finishes broad and long, with firm, even tannins and terrific lift.
