Old World Wine Enthusiast from West Palm Beach, FL
Drank 10\3\19. Nice with baked ziti.
Bright cherry, and just a hint of earth and sweet spice on the nose. Flavors of juicy, red cherry and a touch of earth. Medium tannins and finish. Overall a much stronger effort than the '14. Won't blow you away, but a nice everyday drinker.

Classic right bank nose opens with plums, earth, some cassis, and just a hint of cedar. Velvety black fruit leather, and a touch of green from the cab franc, with medium, well integrated tannins lend support to the medium+ body. A well made wine from a good producer, in an average vintage.

Nose of black fruit, sweet pipe tobacco, and purple flowers. Sweet black fruit, tobacco, and medium, well integrated tannins on the palate. Long finish. An earlier drinking style, but could also age for many years.
Decanted 3 hours.
