2010 vintage. Cocoa powder, black currant, river bank, cedar, cinnamon dusting, gingerbread, dark rye, espresso, sapodilla, and croissant nose.

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1994

Dark, nearly black from all points, with brick just visible near the shallows. Nose bursts with cedar, oak, coffee, mushroom, composted roses, cardamom, tarragon, fig and prune, plum and sweet potato skins. Drinks well for vintage, showing laser of mint and baker’s chocolate, just-sweet mocha tobacco, espresso, cinnamon, clove and bark; expansive and complex, tannins still grainy. Bran and buckwheat, graphite, salted, dried plum. Grilled caramel, cedar from aforementioned grill, dried cranberry and black cherries. A pleasant surprise.

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

2009 is warm and inviting, with leather and clove, cinnamon and coriander. Wheat bread browned darkly. Black cherry, muddy puddle, blackberry, black currant, mocha. Round and supple on the palate with velvety tannins, black and ripe red cherry, tart raspberry and black olive meeting black pepper. Solidly built, boasting muscle beneath the flowing subtleties. Amazing wine!

Château Haut-Batailley

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Color density spectacularly singular, nose of dried blackberry, black currant, wet river pebbles, rosemary dusting on beef, lavender, violet and rose stitched together seamlessly, a minute persimmon, plum and cinnamon sail on in the wind of cumin.
Warm plumminess opens to baked currant and date, wedged into oak crevices. Bite of tobacco, eucalyptus, offset by black olive texture, bituminous sensibility and cinnamon-cedar parameters.

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Chocolate brownie and mud puddle, baked mincemeat pie with light spicing, vanilla seed, coffee bean, thyme. Silky mouthfeel showing cherrywood and crispy bay leaf, earl grey tea, fallen oak, coffee soaked puffball mushroom, smoky pencil, peppercorn and lavender. A pleasure from end to end, and focused.

Château Cos d'Estournel

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Broken sticks, dried black currant, woody mushroom showing tiny flecks of dried blueberry, but also a rich ripe blue streak in deep background, elevates from forest floor to treetop mulberry. Tobacco sweetness and mint scintillate with mocha softly blanketing. Cocoa and cedar emerge first on the palate; with cherry and currant in tow, tart raspberry, eucalyptus and leather. Just enough pepper to keep it firmly grounded.
