On the oaky side, with toasty aromas of stacked wood, smoke and black fruits lurking below the surface. The palate has the typical piercing juiciness of the 2008 vintage, with bursting flavors of pie cherry and raspberry. Minty and oaky on the finish, with snappy finishing acidity. Drink now through 2012.
