In anticipation of next week’s spring 2008 release, I decided to open one of these. Popped and poured, this wine is a beauty. Light ruby red, completely translucent color. On the nose, plenty of cranberry, sour cherry, red currant and earth. Lovely on the palate with great red fruit, and earthy notes. Finishes well and shows absolutely outstanding balance. Great food wine as well. Paired with roast chicken and leek vegetables. 13.8% alc.
