($135; 69% cabernet sauvignon, 11% each merlot and petit verdot and 9% cabernet franc) Good deep ruby-red. Cabernet-dominated aromas of currant, red cherry, licorice, graphite and minerals. Juicy, powerful and penetrating, with bright red berry and mineral flavors. With a few minutes in the glass, this blend showed a much plusher texture and a building sweetness without going at all over the top. This very young and refined wine did not knock me out in the early going quite like the 2006 had last year, but it's long on potential and will need another look in seven or eight years.Author: Stephen Tanzer
