This tastes like a really good version of exactly what you think it would taste like. A good southern French red red that is - kinda foxy, vinous, with some earth and pepper on the palate, some green notes, and a macerated blackberry / raspberry core. Weighty, but with a nice beam of acidity and grainy tannins. Solid wine. Great match with carbonara, it would have killed with caccio e Pepe — 16 days ago

Very nice, crisp acidity with a touch of sweetness. Went very well with dips and snacks. — 3 days ago
I bought this on release somewhere between $25-$27.
My first bottle. I have seen people post this w/ nice reviews. It over delivers the price point.
Still needs another 5 years and will live well for 10- 15 years more.
It is classic good vintage Bordeaux. Blueberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, tobacco, graphite, stone, limestone, moist clay, sage, bay leaf, darker, withering florals, smooth acidity and length, balance & polish for days.
Yeah, the zucchini & sugar snaps peas are cut from my garden the end of this week. If you haven’t had sugar snaps peas out of the garden, you are missing veggie candy. Both crazy good w/ the snap peas taking the tape.
92.5 is more accurate. Really doesn’t taste like a Bordeaux Superior at all. — 16 days ago
Beautiful. Apple and mineral nose. Petrichor. Aromas somewhere between a mineral riesling and Chablis, a little oxidative but so crisp. Palate is not very dense but has a lovely briskness and a lingering finish. Interesting secondary qualities just starting to develop. — 11 days ago
