Raisiny, sweet and baked, with plenty of oak coming on as it airs out. This vintage is somewhat syrupy and strained compared to prior years, with baked black fruit flavors. Seems a little reduced on the finish, but overall it's still good given this winery's strong track record and how the wine compares to other 2007 Riojas.
