    November 20, 2011 - Interestingly, this was more accessible compared to an 07 I opened with the same amount bottle age on it. This wine shows a really large amount of luscious berry fruit from start to finish. For some people it almost might be a little over the top in it's near sweetness of fruit. There are a few other elements mixed in for complexity but the fruit certainly dominates. Maybe with time it'll mellow a bit.
