Four and a half glasses
The color was a translucent ruby. The aromas were definitely fruity, with cherry and strawberry most dominate. The taste had lots of fruit, light tannins, and some toasty oak. The wine was quite smooth with a touch of spice on the finish.
Bright ripe cherry fruit with some powdered sugar and cinnamon. Palate is nice and juicy and spicy with a dark cocoa finish with just a touch of cream.
Has a soft smokey character, with a bit of honey and vanilla in the nose. The mouth short and acidic, seems ripe now.
too early now, but this will be great like the 2007
