    Delicious even when young. Deeper flavours than the '04. Let it open 30 min<br/>

    Glass-staining ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry compote and potpourri, made more complex by notes of musky herbs and tobacco. The yield in rsquo;07 was reportedly pitifully low but this wine comes off as lithe and energetic, with excellent clarity and sweet red fruit character. Finishes with noteworthy length, clarity and a juicy red fruit character, and with very soft tannins. This will drink well young or with age. I also had the chance to re-visit the 2006 Don Melchor, and it has put on weight and richness since last year, but with no loss of vivacity. Irsquo;d keep my hands off my bottles for at least another five years.
