($45) Bright purple. Ripe red and dark berry aromas with complicating notes of licorice and sassafras. Smooth, sappy, penetrating blackberry and cherry flavors are given spine by gentle acidity. Finishes with impressive breadth and lingering sweetness-and little in the way of tannins to get in the way of early enjoyment.

The wine of the night far and away. Had a cork issue necessitating decanting - which was a good idea nonetheless. This was powerful, deep, complex, evolved in the glass, dark violet Grenache-based effort with a floral nose and fruit that so effortlessly glided over the palate. Beautiful and hedonistic. Would love to try another one but there are other 07 CdPs to be had. Would have years to come.
