Dark garnet in color, lovely red fruit nose with spices and slight earthiness. Very pure fruited and excellent balance for a 08 red, with nice supple red fruit. Drinking quite well after 2 hours of air, will be even better if it is able to gain some weight.
-- cork pulled approx. 27 hours before initial taste -- -- tasted a single pour blind over approx. 15 minutes --
Rustic red color of medium depth. A touch green/stalky on the Nose; smells young, with alcoholic raspberry dominating the Nose. Medium-light bodied; red-fruited, and slightly stinky/earthy; note of brown soil. Perhaps not one of the '08 successes, or it could simply be in an awkward spot right now. Hold, I guess.
