International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($160-$325) Good deep red-ruby. Superripe, expressive nose offers black plum, smoke, spices and leather. Denser, sweeter and fatter than the 2006; even more generous and forward today. But this impressively chewy and rich wine also has a powerful underlying spine and plenty of lurking power. Finishes very ripe and very long, with the tannins buried by smoky, minerally soil tones.

Dark in color with some of the standard Graves aromas of old earth, gravel and fruit and yes, slight smoke/tobacco. Rich flavors of the same aromas with relatively smooth tannins. Still young and will need more time, but based on some of the hype about this wine, I was expecting a little more in terms of fruit and thickness (then again maybe I was more in the mood for a California Cab). Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent wine with nice character, elegance and quite smooth texture. Decanted for 90 minutes and would have benefited from more time had I not been thirsty... enjoyable now but will keep.

Nose: smoke, black fruit, earthy. Taste: Full-bodied, good length, generous, still this very pleasant smoke and earth notes, black fruit jam. Could be drunk now but as potential to age thanks to its tannins.

Mocha; good structure, very nice fruit and approachable. Perhaps not at the Parker-given 98 points, but lovely
