Lots of earthy baking spices and a core of ripe dark fruit. Tannins were a touch grainy but really nice to chew on without being too drying.

Very good. More approachable at a young age than the 2015 vintage. Dark fruits balanced with tobacco, cedar, and a bit of mint on the finish. Opened for about 45 min prior to drinking.

Still very burly and tannic. Quite minerally. Took a couple hours to reveal any hint of fruit. In the end a solid value Bordeaux that needs more time.

Discordant and raw. Does not improve with air. Not an interesting wine.

Con el precio perfecto, este Bordeaux no los va a decepcionar ni dejar esperando. Decante unos 20 a 30 minutos y listo. Esta excepcional!!!

Requires time to open up. A bit restrained/austere.
