It is good to see this property on the rebound as I have fond memories of some of their older vintages (I drank several cases of their gorgeous 1982). The 2008's sweet kirsch liqueur intermixed with sandy, loamy soil and licorice undertones are presented in a fruit-forward, precocious, sensual format with medium body, ripe fruit, beautiful density, good freshness, and velvety tannins. Consume it during its first 10-12 years of life.
