($95) Glass-staining ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of raspberry, cherry compote and potpourri, made more complex by notes of musky herbs and tobacco. The yield in '07 was reportedly pitifully low but this wine comes off as lithe and energetic, with excellent clarity and sweet red fruit character. Finishes with noteworthy length, clarity and a juicy red fruit character, and with very soft tannins. This will drink well young or with age. I also had the chance to re-visit the 2006 Don Melchor, and it has put on weight and richness since last year, but with no loss of vivacity. I'd keep my hands off my bottles for at least another five years.
