Tasting Notes:
tasted: October 10, 2007 , from a member
90 points "Color: dark; Nose: intense; Body: full-bodied; Finish: persistent; Overall: rich; Balanced, surprisingly powerful at this price. Enough fruit to drink by itself, but better suited for a ripe cheese or a good steak, given its solid tannins and structure."

"Rich ruby gloss heralds another celebrity-status vintage. Opulence continues throughout with swathes of thick, ripe fruit sheltered by vibrant, dry tannins; poised acid spine adds all-important freshness."
