($70; 14% alcohol) Light, deep red. Knockout nose of floral red berries, red cherry syrup, coffee and minerals. Then suave, silky and plump, with harmonious acidity giving life and definition to the raspberry, plum and delicate licorice flavors. Features wonderful sweetness and pliancy, and finishes subtle and sophisticated, with a light coffee note. Better and more varietally accurate than the excellent '07.
