Dark Ruby. Aromas of red fruit and spice. Palate displays light fruit, cherries, medium tannins. Finish is medium. Drink now, past it’s prime.

Deep red. Aromas of ripe red fruit with strong spicy notes. Dark Berry flavors, medium+ tannins, toasty notes, and becomes drying on the medium finish.

Sturdy and a bit four-square. Not quite resolved in terms of tannins. Neither overtly mineral nor fruit-driven. Reasonable and good with grilled beef.

Big, from a hot year. Good fruit, cedar & slice. But a little clunky & ploding. Ferm tannin but I think the fruit is starting to dry out.

It's pairing beautifully with some Brie. Classic Bordeaux with the right number of miles on it.

Disappointed - no guts left on this one - a mere shadow of its former glory... Not even a bit of sexiness in the empty glass
