Full red. Aromas of strawberry, cherry, mocha, crushed rock and lead pencil, lifted by nuances of violet and licorice. Tighter and higher-pitched than the Ark and not currently showing as much silkiness of texture, with distinctly darker fruit flavors and musky minerality. Best today on the rising finish, which features lush, broad tannins and an utterly seamless texture. The least sweet and expressive of these 2008s today, but with outstanding cellaring potential.

Reminded me of a Schrader. Pure hedonism in a bottle. Smooth and supple with a black cherry core that adds nuances of pencil lead and tobacco with air.
