Good ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, licorice, violet and minerals. Energetic on entry, then tight in the middle, with a strong spice character to the dark berry and licorice flavors. Sexy but youthfully backward wine, with excellent structure for the year. The finish is firm but not hard.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon should turn out to be as good, perhaps even better than the 2007. This dense, concentrated 2008 reveals more freshness than the heat spikes of this vintage would suggest, analytically. Dense purple-colored with notes of blueberry pie intermixed with acacia flowers, roasted coffee, white chocolate and crushed rocks, this full-bodied, powerful, deep 2008 has put on considerable weight since I tasted it last year. It should be an opulent as well as structured wine that will evolve for 20-30 years.
