Medium bodied with dark red fruits, spice and herbs on the nose, this wine offers forward, sweet, juicy cherries, round fruits and softness in the texture. This opened-styled wine should be just about ready on release.

Beausejour is another value play from the vintage. From a terroir located close to Phelan Segur, this is a supple style of wine and should drink well early.

Mature, developed, pleasant, spicy, earthy, red berry oriented wine that\'s easy to drink. If you have a bottle or two, it is time to drink up.

Surprisingly light, with a bright, red fruit, earth and spice character. This is already fully mature and requires drinking sooner than later, as there is not much going on now, and I suspect there will be less going on here in the future. Subsequent vintages from 2009 forward have been much better wines that are also more age-worthy.

Medium bodied, earthy, light in fruit, but with nice, tobacco, tinged, red fruit aromatics, the wine is just past full maturity and needs to be consumed sooner than later.
