Nose of black raspberry, leather, hints of bret, sage, and anise. On the palate, raspberry, leather, smoked meat, melted licorice and herbs. Nice finish. This one showed a hint of bret but not enough to overwhelm. Drink over the next few years. I don't think it gets better than this for this wine.

Nose of plum, black cherry, cedar, bell pepper, and tobacco. ON the palate, bright cherry, plum, mocha, bell pepper, tobacco, hints of spicy oak. Nice finish with smooth but present tannins and balanced acidity. Probably at peak for pleasure right now but will be interesting for the next 10+ years.

Vintage Select Industry Tasting - Firehouse in the Heights: Unlike the great 2007, this one falls a little short. Feels overly manipulated with nose of vanilla, spice, black fruits and cherry. On the palate, dominated by oak with vanilla, and mocha with cherry and blackberry. Finish is dominated by oak. Drink over the near term before the oak dries out.

Vintage Select Industry Tasting - Firehouse in the Heights: From the color and nose, this has some obvious oak treatment. Nose of pineapple, grapefruit, with hints of spice. On the palate, creamy with pineapple and grapefruit flavors. Nice finish but the oak detracts a little.
