--- COLOR: Opaque garnet with medium-garnet rim NOTE: Better than the 2005, the nose has some serious cigar ash comingled with blackberry juice and cherry liqueur. The mouth is rich, round and nicely sweet red cherry jam, followed by more of the ash/smoke/mineral structure. The finish is only about 15 seconds, but starts out fruit-driven then finishes ash-driven. It's a well-made wine, just not my style. Very BdM in nature. Seemed to remain consistent over 6 hours, so this has a long life ahead.
