This is wonderfully expressive and varietal on the nose and while there’s an obvious oak presence, it supports the floral, lightly herbal and wonderfully fresh wild berry notes perfectly. A little light on entry though with perfect balance, the brambly blackberry and raspberry fruit really pops on the mid-palate. This shows more obvious oak and vanilla than the 2007. This maintains a really lovely herbal component on the palate that balances the toasty oak and keeps the cherry fruit perfectly centered. This really exhibits wonderful purity and fruit persistence on the long, palate staining finish. 93pts

The nose was more restrained than the ’05 and ’07, yet still highly enjoyable with blackberry, floral notes and black pepper. On the palate, it was juicy with red berries, black currant, spicy vanillin, and herbs. The finish was palate coating, yet fresh with notes of sour red berries.
