Crazy complex, red/black fruit, dried and desiccated, band aids and old leather and tobacco...old leaves, churned earth with a slight savory/sweet flavor. Med + acid, tannins med, alcohol medium (12.5). Thought it was old chianti classico riserva...

Mature, workman like Bordeaux. Nose has underbrush , dried eucalyptus leaves, and some cassis fruit underneath that layer of detritus. Lots of brick and dried underbrush flavors, but finishes flat and short.

Loved it! Strong out front, but smooth finish. Lots of layers..needs to breathe a good couple hours, but worth the wait.

Garagiste selection. $28.71. Excellent 05 vintage. Very smooth, big ripe tannins.

Too young to drink right now. Even with a significant amount of time to decant seemed very restrained

Very nice spicy nose. Good tannic structure. A bit closed at first but hints of future complexity are evident.
