Happy Pinot Noir Day! Tonight I am celebrating with the 2009 La Croix de Beaucaillou. This left bank 2nd Class growth 2nd bottling blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot from Saint Julien.
On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, rich plum, black currant, cassis, spice, violets, cedar, woodsy notes and earth.
On the palate I am getting black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, licorice, cedar, graphite, wet gravel and earth.
This wine is full bodied with a soft supple unctuous mouthfeel and a medium to medium + acidity a medium to medium + fine savory tannins that move into a long dark fruit pencil lead finish. A beautiful Left Bank Bordeaux from Saint Julien and a shining example of the 2009 vintage. Have a wonderful rest of your week and please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a month ago

Woah dude. I was lost in the desert dying of thirst when I came upon an old tire underneath some rocks and I drank what was inside and it gave me life — 23 days ago
