Beautiful nose of candied cherry, pipe tobacco, clove, and vanilla. Palate: Oh so smooth, a thicker and more viscous and mouth-coating wine. Candied cherry, clove, sweet tobacco, a bit of vanilla, and a little smoky acidity. This is clearly reminiscent of the 2007. Day 2 it went mainly to candied cherry, lost the pipe tobacco and clove, and I was sorely disappointed. BUT it came back in a big way by day 4. This is a winner. 91-92 pts.
