We first tasted this wine back in March 2008, and it seems to have aged quite a bit since then. Stewed strawberry and rhubarb along with sanguine notes on the nose, followed by riper flavors of fig preserves and spice in the mouth and finish. Good acidity and softened tannins make this wine a good choice to drink now.
