This is a very lifted savoury nose of leather, pepper, tobacco and a bit of graphite or dusty wood. It's medum bodied...

I actually agree with the poster who gave it an 84. I was totally surprised by this after the '06, which was outstanding, rich, plush, ageworthy and simply delicious. The '07 tastes like an entirely different product. I'll stick with my case of '06

94???

I can only assume that is a rating for the previous vintage and not this weirdo.

Big surprise that you've never heard of whoever gave this wine that rating.

This wine is a disjointed, under-ripe, acidic mess.

It tastes like homemade wine.

popped-and-poured:

An interesting oaky, slightly smoky berry nose with touches of spice, pine and tobacco.

Disappointingly medium, almost light bodied. Very little concentration of fruit that just can't compete with the raw cranberry, woody palate.

Long finish, like lemon juice.

Embarrassing release from Tyrrell's.

I'm taking back the rest
