Wow, I was very disappointed with this vintage. It's very flat, not much pizazz and certainly not indicative of previous vintages. I cracked a bottle from multiple cases to verify my disappointment with the 2007. The fruit is muted and dominant dustiness prevails... When I read the initial review that encouraged drinking this wine immediately through 2009, I thought certainly it would improve until 2012...well, I guess I was wrong. As a new release it was very good, no longevity in the bottle as with other vintages whatsoever.
