October 14, 2014 - Not very enjoyable tonight as this CCR has shut down hard. strong tannin and acid are the key points, but acids are there, along with leather and wood in the background, soil, mushroom italian spices and lastly dried fruit.
So needing to have another 2 years before I open the last bottle. I have save the last half of tonights bottle, but switched to a dark beer for pizza as it was not in drinking mode. Just shut down.3 people found this helpful Comment

September 5, 2014 - Much smoother than the last bottle. This was well balanced and drinking pretty smoothy. Went really well with Italian food. Overall, an excellent CCR for $18. Hope the 09s I have are as good.

August 31, 2014 - I had an opportunity to compare the 2010 to this 2007 separated by a few nights. I conclude that the 2007 is a richer, deeper wine. The 2010 seemed relatively thin. Both wine are a good value.1 person found this helpful Comment

Stor doft, körsbär, choklad, blommor, mandel
Medelfyllig m viss mognad, mogen nästan torkade körsbär, choklad, grillkol, lite för mycket fat och rejält alkoholhet avslutning
