Dark fruits (dark cherry, plums, blackberry), vibrant acidity, moderate/balanced oak + tannin. Smell and taste are both a bit alcoholic at first but dissipates with aeration. Much improved after 1 hour of aeration. Probably will improve more in another 1-3 years.

Pineapple, stone fruits, citrus, slight mineral. Slight bitterness. Perhaps overpriced for what it brings to the table. Or just too young.

Dark fruits, a bit of charred oak. Just can't believe 2007 vintage was Wine Spectator 94 pts and top 100 wines of the year (#9 of 100). This bottle was far from that level, not even within eye sight.

Ripe black fruits, but not a fruit bomb. Balanced oak, a bit of spices. Very good overall balance with enough acidity & tannin to balance fruit (but not too much). Need at least 2 hours aeration at this stage. Likely to further improve over next 3 to 5+ years.

Rich & deep dark fruits (dark cherry, dark berries), slight inky note, spices, tannic grip at the finish. Hasn't changed much (if at all) over last 18 months. Probably not at its peak yet.

A slight honeyed character and verging on off-dry. Honeydew melon, pineapple, slight minerals. Nice flavour concentration. Slight bitter finish. Not enough acidity to balance sweetness. Poor QPR.
