An improvement over the 2004, which I found a little harsh and hot. Not this one. Dirty ruby red in color, well balanced and medium bodied. Taste was tart and tangy like a granache should be. Robust and powerful due to the energy of the granache grape. Feel this on the back of tongue and in the throat. Aftertaste reminds me of bittersweet chocolate. Very reactive in the mouth. Finish 10-20 seconds. Bouquet of winery barrel room, which is somewhat yeasty and heady. Legs ran fast, fat, and in several waves. Light and fine residue in glass. This is well made and I definitely like it, but I feel this would be hard to drink a lot of. Think this willl go well with strong flavored foods and sauces.
