...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...

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!
