Didn't bring a red as we weren't planning on drink more than a btl, and that Leroy Monty did the trick, but our palates got hungry for some red, so looked at the half btl list(needed to drive back to SF) and chose this, great vintage and a solid producer. This is in a beautiful place right now, plenty of room for improvement, but complemented dinner just right.

This is singing, right now. I can't recall the last time a whole table gushed over a bottle of non-first growth Bordeaux.

The "forgotten fifth growth." Real "steak wine." Minerally, balanced tannin and acid. Solid

Keeping getting distracted every few months and open an 05 Bordeaux. Not ready, this wine was undrinkable the first night. There was so much oak and wood tannin. 18 hours later the texture relaxed and it opened a bit. 28 hours later the oak integrated somewhat...not a pleasant experience, this wine needs years...if ever

Super tasty. Cranberry and black fruit. Softening tannins. I got the prime NY steak to pair with this, which was a smart choice.
