($185; bottled with a screwcap) Good full ruby. Tangy red berries, spices, iron and mocha on the nose; a bit cooler than the 2004 bottling. Then juicy, spicy and tight; less lush than the 2004 but still with a creaminess at the core. The vibrant red berry flavors nicely support the wine's lightly herbal quality. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent, with no shortage of flavor.Author: Stephen Tanzer
