We tasted this blind along with 11 other 2007 Southern Rhones and it was, IMHO, the star of the night.

While definitely much too young to be drinking, this wine was wonderfully focused with an amazing purity and balance. Dark sweet fruits, cassis, plum and raspberry. Perfectly integrated tannins. Extrememly well structured with a long, long finish. Definitely a wine to revisit in about 10 years.
