I opened this by accident, meaning to open the Emerald Pool 2006. Anyhow, much like the bottle I opened the night before but with slightly less fruit. I realized however that it really needed some rich food. When paired with a wild rice with leeks and pinto beans and yogurt sauce it excelled. The night before it didn't really sing with pasta and olive oil with broccoli and sun dried tomatoes. Neither bottle really paired well with cheeses either.
