both wines were very similar in style and had similar characteristics... deep, dense, almost candied fruit tones… think lemon curd and ripe citrus, not overtly complex but with some nice secondary nuance and flavors… overall nice structure, with the 06’ displaying a little more balance than the riper 07’… both had beautiful floral bouquets and an attractive, spicy component playing off some subtle minerality on the finish… both bottles were delicious and if they were any indication, hint that these wines still have some gas left in the tank to develop and the structure to last… between the two, at this stage and on this night, i preferred the 06’ but the 07’ was not far behind.
