Tasted July 26, 2008.
Consistent with previous bottle although fairly opened for business this time around. Opened and served immediately. Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear hue throughout. Nose of plums, black berries and black cherries. Maybe some cocoa or dark chocolate aromas as well. Flavors of black cherries, plums black berries and a little currant on the medium to long finish. Medium acidity, moderate tannins, full bodied. Drink or hold. I have two remaining bottles that I'll consume in 2010 and 2012. (92 pts.)
