Tasting Notes

Palish red. Captivating, expressive aromas of cherry, smoke, mocha and underbrush; slightly exotic in a positive way. Sweet on entry, then sappy in the middle, thanks to firm acidity and a saline quality. Complex, soil-driven wine but not at all dry. "Will these wines shut down like the 1996s or will they be more like the 2001s?" wondered Fourrier, adding that "2008 is like a vintage of the '70s that came to visit us in an age of phenolic maturity."
