(blended with 15% merlot): Deep ruby-red. Explosive nose offers boysenberry, redcurrant, cherry, tobacco, graphite and sandalwood. Wonderfully silky and concentrated, with outstanding lift to its almost painfully intense berry, spice, earth and mineral flavors. The pliant middle yields to a gripping, mineral-driven, very long finish. A beauty, but the 2008 may well surpass it in the long run.Author: Stephen Tanzer
