For everyone that discounted 07s out of gates the extra bottle time has caused the wine to really evolve. It's taken on a ton more weight without sacrificing punchy acidity. Fruit has integrated and while there's still notes of red berries and cherries the secondary notes of baker's chocolate, spice and earth are more dominant at this point. Really nice wine. It's drinking really well right now.
I liked 07 out of the gate and they even seem to be getting better - the red fruits are a brighter now, combining against a bouquet of herbs, cocoa and soil. Brisk acidity, nice mouth-feel - this is drinking really well.
