90 points "Rich and polished, with a solid core of blackberry and black currant fruit layered with mocha, sweet spice and briar notes. Shows more purity and freshness, with less toast, than previous vintages. The finish is long and juicy. Drink now through 2008." Best 2007-2008

3 stars "Color: dark; Nose: complex; Aromas: woody; Acidity: supple; Sweetness: dry; Body: full-bodied; Finish: medium; Overall: bold; color: dark purple almost black nose: fragrant complex, cedar-box, forest floor, cherries, funkiness taste: initial hint of sourness quickly smooths out to a black licorice, pepper, green pepper, sour cherries, smoke, maybe vegetal. I initially did not like this but it was probably way too young. It was much better the next day."
