Wow. I enjoyed this a lot. Bigger than a gentleman's luncheon claret. But not overblown. Deep, still youthful, cedar and red fruits. Sexy af tannins and oh so long. Wow. Seriously good Cab blend

$55 a btl wholesale. At the bargain table. Really. Bottle a bit shoved around, but still one of the good boys.

Decanted for two hours. Strong fruit, nice nose. Dense black fruit. Great year shined through.

Still plenty of life left with good tannins. A bit of vegetable undertones typical of area. Other 2000s during the evening were better.

Oaky, smoky and full of complex other nuances. Very long. Stellar really. It still has quite a few year in it though! Will try it again in a few years...

Definitely let it breathe a tad. Could support a heavy or lighter meal.

Aromatic and open, this showed as a great classic Bordeaux! All sorts of developed fruit, floral and incense notes, plus truffle and barnyard.
