Dark red. Started off with big time tannins , but after two hours they softened some. Initially also had steminess, then the palate was dominated by black fruit, big time blueberries, and a tart finish. Surprised how young this was. Will give my other two bottles more time.
My first bottle of the 2007. Dark opaque garnet. Nose of blackberry, stewed prunes, graphite, licorice, cedar, and vanilla. Full palate of dense dark fruit: blackberry, currant, and black licorice. Superb length. refreshing acidity. Sweet tannins. Unobtrusive oak. Drinking well, but structured to last 2 decades.
