(2008 Vintage) Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes.
had this with a porterhouse steak. 18.08.2010 the first impression was a fine tight Knit burgundy opened up after 15-20 minutes to a fine silky cab, with slight vanilla flavours. after an hour the wine had turned and tasted a bit like a port wine..... comment: this vintage should probably have drunk already some years ago... interested in hearing other comments on same vintage

Wine Spectator(2006 Vintage) "Full-blown, ripe and rich, with intense and sharply focused dried currant, wild berry and blackberry fruit that's still fairly tannic at this stage. Ends with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2015. 33,900 cases made. - JL"
