Tasting the 2007 10 Años Después again next to the 2008 shows how this was a lighter year, and the oak, despite being nicely integrated, seems more obvious. Again, this is ready, and I'd drink it while I wait for the 2008.

Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. Powerful, oak-spiced red/blue fruit aromas pick up mocha, cola and vanilla accents with air. Lush and seamless on the palate, showing strong spicy thrust to its cherry-vanilla, boysenberry, rose pastille and spicecake flavors. Stains the palate and shows impressive depth of flavors, with no excess weight. Finishes sweet, supple and very long, with discreet tannins and a repeating blue fruit note.

This generous red offers cassis, dried cherry, cocoa and licorice flavors, focused and still fresh, supported by firm, well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity. Shows power and balance, in the modern style. Drink now through 2031. 300 cases made.

Showing some maturing, earthy aromas with grilled red-pepper and meaty notes, this is in savory mode. The palate has intensity and detail and attractive, juicy dark plums. Drink or hold.
