We're on a roll with this producer after having the tasty 2005 recently. This was very nice with texture, plum and savory flavors. Not over-ripe or oaky. It needs to be decanted for an hour first as we thought it was bad at first but blossomed into a very nice wine. Drink up.

Went ok with a morel pizza with fontina.
