Much better the second day..Initially a bit of fizz, but shook the wine, and this disappeared.. On second day, silky texture, mid weight, nice cherry fruit and beautiful balance. Much better than the last time I had it.
Yes, yes, yes I am one of those who thought the 2007's were too light and thin and didn't purchase many of these vintages. However, this one, is drop dead gorgeous right now. Lots of baker's spice, cedar wood, bing cherry, pencil shavings, and a touch of earth that really rounds this wine out. Great job Winderlea and Robert!
