...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...

Super classic, refined and elegant, offering grainy tannins, cedar, red and dark berries, dusty minerality and hints of chocolate. No rush here, but won't last forever.

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.

I would revisit in another 10 years as this is showing a lot of tannins with some Black fruits along with cedar, smoke, mineral and green tea notes. Just needs more time to strut it's stuff!
