($100-$150) Full ruby-red. Superripe, highly complex aromas of plum, cocoa powder, tobacco and warm stones. Big, plush and chewy, with compelling sweetness and generosity of texture to the flavors of plum, minerals, tobacco and woodsmoke. Has the sheer stuffing to support the serious, building but noble tannins. Finishes with superb palate-staining persistence. This may well shut down in bottle, and should age well for the next two decades, but it's a knockout right now.

I oppened a bottle by mistake as I thought the 06 was not ready. To my surprise and great pleasure the wine is velvety soft, with a wonderful balance of tannis and acids. The bouquet is flowery with a bit of leather. I should make this kind of mistakes more often.
