I think this wine is ready to be drunk - the fruit just sings and those secondary flavors are starting to emerge if not are already present. Powerful raspberry and blackberry flavors, leather. Enjoyable and glad I drank it now.
This 2008 has a deep purple color. 14.5% Alcohol. Aromas of blackberry, plum, sandalwood and pea gravel with a hint of leather and top soil. Flavors of blackberry and plum, subtle vanilla and leather with a hint of minerality on the palate. Solid mid-palate. Dark fruit, sweet wood and chocolate on the finish.
