Very strong structure, layers and layers of ripe fruit, tannins and acidity. Very young, it was not a wine that everybody loved that night. Definitely not an elegant wine, but very complex. Better in the second day.
Drank side by side with 07, this one is less expressive on the nose with raspberries, some chalk and vanilla. Great mouthfeel, very smooth, good dark fruit upfront but a bit short on the finish compared to 2007.
