Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

Decanted and simmered for hours. By Hour 3+ this broadened into a deep and luxurious wine. Ripe fruit - currant blackberry. Nice mouthfeel with some mineral residue. Not a long tail on this but it did linger still. Not particularly fragrant. A bit inward overall but all the pieces good and bad kinda fit together and it was nonetheless quite enjoyable. — 13 hours ago

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2005

A 3 hour decant has 05 Montrose showing beautifully, wafting layers of cassis, cedar and mocha with a silky and vibrant palate and fine grained tannins. Still so young but in a real nice spot. — 9 days ago

Yeah, we do them in a dark room with blindfolds, wine in metal cups with straws, no utensils; everything is very unexpected.

@Severn Goodwin, I almost pulled the 1986 Meyney to take to a steak dinner at the Hitching Post in Casmalia, CA, but worried it might be too tannic or dry, so opted for a 2003 CA Cab instead (which was 20 years too young)!! LOL

@Doug Powers The '89's are ready to go, if not more than ready.

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

2001 Lafon-Rochet
Saint Estephe

Inky black with cassis, black currant and blackberry. Black pepper and lavender with a whiff of smoke and graphite. Plum and vine charcoal give a softness to the tannin which is amazingly strong. Graphite shimmers through dark cocoa, cedar and pepper. Lovely and lively.

Château Saint-Pierre

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend

2005 vintage. Beautiful nose, with cassis, blackberries, cedar wood, a little smokiness,and flowers. Seriously concentrated, combining power and elegance. Layers of fruit in a tight but ripe tannic structure. Showing beautifully now, but it should age effortlessly for decades. Classic Saint-Julien. — a day ago
