Holding up very well. Not going to further evolve to a better place, tho.
Sage and licorice notes on the nose, give way to sandalwood and earth on the palate. All the characteristics that wifey chooses to avoid. You need the right mindset to approach this. — 2 days ago
Hög syra och strävhet samt fylligt. Smak av plommon och mörk choklad — 13 days ago
So much to enjoy: spicy, bright, brambly, juicy red fruit that demands a glass kept close at hand. — 14 hours ago
Cork fell apart but wine was not spoiled. Cinnamon and oak notes with a hint of dried cherries. So fun to open up the 35 year old wine. — 25 days ago
Medium(+) intensity aromas of black fruit (plum, cherry and prune) with secondary aromas of oak (cedar, smoke and dark chocolate) and just beginning to show some tertiary aromas and flavors of tobacco leaf and prunes. The wine has medium(+) acidity, medium(+) fine grained textural tannins and medium(+) body. The finish is medium (+) and while slightly grippy, those tannins are ripe and it’s that structure which will give it the ability to age in bottle for another 5/7 years. There is enough fruit and defined aromas and flavors to balance the acidity and the tannins which want to be the protagonista of this wine. A solid Claret. #saintestephe #bordeaux #grandvindebordeaux #cabernet #cabernetsauvignon #merlot and just 5% #petitverdot — a month ago
