    December 21, 2008 - Probably too early to try this one, but I received a few as gifts and thought I'd crack one.
    Will reserve a score for at least another year.
    Enjoyed the 04, 05, 06, so this was highly anticipated.
    One the nose - raisin, prunes, dark fruits, and... redwood? There is a predominant cab influence this round.
    Opens to a somewhat brighter fruit after 20 min open.
    On the tongue it's dry, dry, dark fruit, with a lot of syrah-like characteristics, and currants on the lingering finish. Very rich.
    Tried alone and with homemade pizza.
    Too early to tell yet if this holds up to the 04 and 05, but certainly has potential.
