2008 Stuhlmuller Vineyards Alexander Valley 14.5% $38

Piercing and focused herb-tinged black currant nose supported by a firm base of oak and topped with notes of eucalyptus and damp sawdust. Rather silky on entry with rich blackberry flavors and a light impression of sweetness. The fruit really spreads out in the mouth, gaining notes of espresso bean, licorice, dried herbs and integrated cigar spice adding complexity. The finish is a touch short at this stage and a bit dominated by the fine-grained tannins, but the fruit, nicely black currant, squeezes out on the final, along with a hint of nutmeg. The fruit here is quite pure with good complexity in a rich, dense style. 93pts
