We didn't take good notes when tasting so going from memory. Before opening we thought this wine was it's end but were pleasantly surprised how good it was. We have heard that some of the newer vintages are better so we will have to check those out.
Allowed the wine to open 1 1/2 hours before drinking. Nose is cherry with earth notes, medium bodied, dried cherry on the palette, with a pleasing earth brit moment before the pleasant tannins on the finish hit. Enjoyed with a salad. I was pleased with the bottle relative to the reviews I had read. I think the bottle probably should be consumed within the year.
PnP and drank over 2 hours. I do not know whether my pallet has become more sophisticated, or whether this wine is not as good as previous vintages. Perhaps a bit of both. Fairly deep color. Earthy cherry taste. Moderately long finish. There's nothing wrong with this wine, but, on the other hand, there is nothing really exciting. Pleasant enough for a Wednesday night at home.
This is a pleasant 2007 Bordeaux style blend. A little a little short on tannins for me. But past the tannins it made a nice wine to share with friends at a meal. I'd be glad to have it around for a comfortable evening.
