I didn't pickup any fruit. Dark earth and menthol on the nose; hot on the palate, dominated by what I'll call licorice. Hard to believe this was the same wine that others are rating so well. Drank the 2007 the night before and it was hands down the winner.
RussK. City Hall dinner with Pablo, Eddie and wives Nice. Big nose and taste of American oak. Thought it was Spanish or a Ripasso. Deep dark sweet liquid fruit. Surprisingly little tannin. It would be hard to guess blind that this was 75% cab. 92-
