90 Points

Friday, November 23, 2007 - Bright ruby red with slight bricking on the edges. Complex nose of dark fruits, cedar, tobacco, earth, and mint. Unfortunately, the palate didn't live up to the promise of the beautiful aromatics. Decent fruit on the palate but a touch of a vegetable/herbal quality; the mint/eucalyptus became more prominent over time. A little thin on the mid palate but good finish. Seemed to become tart toward the end of the evening. I'd say this wine has peaked and may be declining.
