"Ripe and spicy, with a smoky edge to the currant and plum flavors, lingering nicely on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2012." (Web Only, 2008) From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Celalr: "Medium red. Fresh raspberry, blackberry and Asian spice aromas convey ripeness and clarity. Sappy red and dark berry flavors offer good palate coverage and a bright note of orange peel. The spice character returns on the moderately long, sweet finish. Offers immediate, fruit-driven appeal and is more exotic and alluring than the '05 version."
