(15.8% alcohol; from Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyard, pruned to one shoot per cluster): Multidimensional nose combines black cherry, graphite, licorice, bitter chocolate and espresso lifted by flowers and exotic spices. Lush, seamless and superconcentrated, with a slight fruit compote aspect but enough acidity to give it life. Finishes with building but suave tannins and outstanding length. This should be long-lived but it won't hurt your mouth today. From my memory, this is fruitier than the 2007 was at the same stage of its life in bottle.
