Not on a par with the inaugural 2007, but for a rough year this wine brings about as much as it can. The nose is woody, deep, balsamic and herbal, while the body is thick and saturated, with roasted berry, coffee and bitter chocolate flavors. The finish lacks length and character, but it has heft and feel. A commendable effort for a poor vintage.
