Plush and generous, with outstanding concentration to a broad swath of ripe black plum, wild berry and underbrush notes. Round tannins, savory minerality and toasty oak wash over the finish. Drink now through 2010. 5,000 cases made.
Pretty, with orange blossom and peach aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with good intensity of fruit, balanced acidity and a tight but long fruit and mineral finish. Delicious. Drink now. 3,500 cases made. —Jo Cooke
Good fresh black fruit, with a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with tight tannins that give a light pull on the finish. Nicely balanced, but needs a little time. Well done for the vintage. Best after 2007. 3,300 cases made. —Jo Cooke
Ripe and intense, with very good depth to quince, green pear and lime flavors. Salt, green almond and stone notes linger, with dried lemon skin on the finish. Drink now. 2,800 cases imported. —Daniel Sogg
