Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, a smooth mouthfeel and a dry finish. Drink it over the next several months. Comes down on the brittle side in a big way, with a big bouncy, tannic frame around a core of herbal blackberry and plum fruit. For a 2008, this is a little toughfob, and the fruit is laced with cola and licorice, but the tannins are fine. Drink now–2015. Full and smoky on the nose, with woody, meaty aromas. The palate offers more dimension and personality, while the flavors favor blackberry and give the wine a solid structure. On the finish, the wine is tough fob, and not overly elegant. Soft and creamy, with an attractive perfumed character. It is very ripe, with black-currant flavors, but the sweetness has been pulled into a wonderful juicy aftertaste.
