2008 Red First Tasting
The 2008 is the most structured, richly textured, and complex OS RED to date. Blackberry, tobacco, vanilla and fig on the nose. The subtle texture is supported by rich tannins. The merlot and cabernet flavors are beautifully balance on the palate with notes of dark fruit, crushed rose petals and dark chocolate.
