Delightful, new-style Bordeaux. Tons of fruit, a touch of green pepper, spicy. Very smooth tannins.

Tasting the 2012 vintage. Classic Bordeaux. Very structured and tight early on. Opens up beautifully with time. Smooth, plenty of vanilla.

Balance of old and new world. Definitely a "French" nose but enough fruit on the palate to keep you happy. Still a hefty amount of tannins, could use some aging

An interesting and classic Bordeaux nose but there's not much life left on the palate.

Clearly old-world, but plenty of fruit for us new-world folks.

Takes a while to open up but when it does it is very nice. Cookout with LAX wolf pack parents.

A great demonstration on earth and non-fruit characteristics in a wine.

@KermitLynchWine in Bordeaux? Lush, broad, fruity. Why did they change the label?
