Issue: Issue 138
($40) Good full ruby-red. Aromas of bitter cherry, leather and band-aid. Sweeter and suppler than the 2005 cabernet franc release, with a distinctly plumper, softer middle palate. Finishes with dusty tannins and lingering sweet fruit.

Complex, tight and focused, displaying dried currant and spicy berry notes, with hints of nutmeg, sage and herbs. The long, focused, lingering, firmly tannic finish bodes well for short-term cellaring.

Inky in color. Slow legs. Lead pencil, Oak (little too much), Blueberry, Blackberry, Prune.
Tasted again on 10/02/09, consistent notes with above, in addition, silky mouthfeel, oak was a little more in balance this time, earth/brown tobacco notes came through as well; drank with pork barbeque.
