Lovely balance. Nice red plum fruit on nose, palate and moderately long finish. Velvety and delicately balanced. Very nice wine.

Time to drink up but still very pleasant old style Bordeaux. Black fruit and some cherries, tobacco, leather, barnyard. All there.

Elegant sublime nose of berries and cedar, sweet luscious flavors with subdued tannins and a lingering finish.

Stinky wet cork, shoulder high fill, from perfect storage, off nose which cleared after decanting, very light color and soft tannins - still pleasant but fading fruit. Drink now.
