Slightly better than a recently tasted 2006. Purple, ruby at the rim. Raspberries and boysenberries, with licorice, floral and spice on the nose. A lot of complexity. Amazing texture. Lush, supple and sexy all at once. Perfectly balanced. Tannins seem about resolved. Long finish. This seems to be at peak right now but should stay over the next few years depending on bottle variation. Will work with a wide variety of food at this point, but heavier foods would be better.
