Bright dark ruby. Very ripe aromas and flavors of dark berries, cocoa powder and bitter chocolate. Fine-grained and light on its feet, with the exotic oak character typical of Silver Oak nicely supported by its intense fruit. Harmonious acidity and a slightly herbal quality contribute to the suavity of this wine. Expands nicely on the back half, with the fine-grained tannins coating the palate. An excellent vintage for this bottling: not a heavyweight but balanced and alive. (ST)
Big, ripe, rich, concentrated, and sweet - this wine from a great vintage is more complex than ’05 and ’06, with aromas of roasted espresso beans, cedar, tobacco, and cherry liqueur. It has the kind of smoothness you get in fine dark chocolate with an element of bitterness in the finish. There’s a higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon than usual. (EM)
