92 Points

Thursday, November 10, 2011 - Relatively aromatic on the nose given its youth, with dark fruit, forest, and spiced perfume. In the palate, excellent fruit depth while maintaining a sense of balance. Lush mouthfeel with only the slightest dryness on the finish. I was expecting more tannins. RP says this will last for a decade or more. Maybe, but not at my house! Ideally, these should be held for 2-3 years but the difficulty with that strategy is that it's very approachable now. The best sub-$20 of wine I've had in a very long time. I prefer this in style to many of the bolder '07s.
