...the 2008 La Mission was one of the great bargains of recent vintages. Its healthy blue/purple color is followed by aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, licorice, truffles, underbrush and forest floor... Medium to full-bodied and concentrated with good acidity, freshness and delineation, this is a big wine for the vintage, but also very classic in its balance of tannin, acidity and extract...

A bit tight and not as much in the nose. Had a nice decant. Good mouthfeel. 08 might not be a great vintage for this otherwise great producer.
