Decanted 3+ hours. On the nose, a nice blend of berries, earth, and mineral. Less funk than the ’06 but still old world. Call it a softer, gentler cow pasture. Blueberry and blackberry as well as a bit of coffee or mocha on the palate, with a very nice mouthfeel. Great value.

Decanted about 45 minutes. Should have gone 3 hours like the other reviewer, because it was a bit tight. Vegetal, mineral nose, almost like a Cab. A little bit of fruit that really came out as we were finishing the bottle. Though big (15% ABV), not a bomb. Might have to grab a few more at only $15 and let 'em air out a bit longer.

Full bodied, smooth mouthfeel with mix of red and dark berries, some vanilla sweetness initially but pepper and oak on the finish. Decent acidity and subtle tannins. Similiar to a CDP or Gigondas. Good value for $15. This may be the first "Biodynamic" wine I have enjoyed. More like a new world syrah, probably why they print "Syrah" on the label for Americans. You dont see that often from south French wines, mostly just inexpensive Burgs (print Pinot). Wonder if they sell it in France like that. Update: just checked wine-searcher. There is a shop in France showing same label and selling it for $24US.
