@Ira Schwartz lovely: imo eating wine. Extreme minerality, spices, vanilla, butter. Fresh taste with a tingling bitterness and long aftertaste.

Château Lynch-Bages

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

A very primary but nonetheless accessible L-B, tons of cassis and black olive, prominent toasty oak suggest less than 5 as opposed to 17 yrs of age. Fullish in body and quite long, likely to soften up in time just don’t know how much! — 8 days ago

100% PN from North Coast for 21’. Raspberry, pink grapefruit, watermelon, hint of strawberry and sea breeze. Juicy and refreshing on the palate, with touch of chalky mineral. Crisp acidity with round edge.

Madiran Tannat Blend 2013

Tannat (80%)/Cabernet Franc (20%) blend. Deep purple color. Dark black fruit aromas and flavors. Hints of smoke and oak. Just a bit of a green note but it incorporates beautifully. Nicely structured, as the Tannat was not over extracted. Tannins are present but not overly grippy. Alcohol is also reasonable at 13.5%. This wine has benefited from aging. Thank You Ron B. — 14 days ago
