Bright violet. Youthful, high-pitched aromas of red and dark berries, with a touch of anise. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and licorice flavors are lifted by tangy minerality, picking up a floral quality with air. Nervy and pure on the long, spicy, red-fruity aftertaste.

The 2008 J.C. Vizcarra, from a moderately challenging vintage, was the recipient of all the juice that would have gone into the estate’s upper-tier wines. It was aged for 15 months in 50% new French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an expressive bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, lavender, and blackberry. Ripe, succulent, and structured, it has 2–3 years of aging potential and will provide prime drinking from 2012 to 2020. It is a great value in serious red wine.

Meaty and dense aromas of black fruits, earth and leather are subtle and interesting. Layered and smooth on the palate, with deep berry and plum flavors offset by herbal leanings and vanilla. Slightly oaky on the finish, with length and liveliness. Drink now through 2014.
