The 2007 Valbuena is rounded and warmer than the 2006 with lush dark berry fruits interlaced with scents of espresso and bay leaf. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp acidity with a composed, focused finish of black cherries, raspberry, cedar and mocha. The 2007 has great precision and focus. It is more feminine and assured than the 2006, but one senses that it is holding something back to charm consumers in five or six year’s time. This is very impressive. Drink 2017-2030.

Toast and espresso flavors mingle with black cherry, licorice and tar notes in this smoky red. This shows light, firm tannins and a lightly herbal finish. Harmonious and graceful, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2014. 15,390 cases made.  –TM
