    January 21, 2012 - decanted for 1 hour then returned to the bottle. nose of cassis, black cherries, dark chocolate, spice box, and vanilla unfolds in waves. a mineral edge and subtle hibiscus emerge with additional time in the glass. full body. satisfying, creamy mouthfeel with pleasing symmetry. plenty of structure. the tannin does not get in the way of enjoyment at this point in time, while the acid showcases the fruit so well. displays a level of ripeness that i equate with many other '07s, but still preserves the nobility stature i find in these wines. finishes along the same themes noted above. although i really enjoyed this bottle, i have to give a nod to the '08 GIII. on that note, i'm much more a fan of that vintage. another winner from larry fairchild! after being enamored by the fairchild wines from 3 vintages, i can easily say i'm sticking with this operation for the long haul. kudos!
