Purchased at the winery after a wonderful personal tour. Good color, dark garnet. Nose of roses and chocolate and strawberries. Youthful but more subdued than when we had it at the winery 10 months ago. Flavors of cherries, plums, and cocoa. Smooth and silky on the palate. Nice medium length finish. Should get better in the short term. No heat on the finish. Easily as good as the '07 and maybe more upside.
