This shows exceptional. Black cherry, cassis, blackberry, cedar box, graphite, forest floor, baking spices and vanilla. Smooth tannin and moderate acidity. Lack of some depth on the palate but very good on this level.

Faint red fruit aromas and medium tannins, neither exhibiting fruit forward flavors nor oak ageing aromas. While body is balanced and inoffensive, still fees tight after more than an hour in the decanter. Perhaps not quite ready to drink, but a bit of an underperformed at its price point

Not showing well. Green, metallic, and mold notes. Just ripened red and black fruit. Gritty tannins. #bordeaux #hautmedoc #ctbucklinwine

Black fruit, earth, cassis and baking spices. Delicate on the nose. M acid, body, and tannin. Not overly oaked. Balanced.

Ruby red color. Ripe black fruit on nose. Cedar, earth, old style Bordeaux. Acidity balances well with mild tannins. Slightly dry. Nice bottle. Great value.

Drink again on Nov 28, 2018; and this wine continues to remain my most favorite from Medoc. Must let it breath at least 30 minutes. Dark but bright ruby red color with very fresh aromas of red fruits like cherry, plum, and tobacco on the nose. Full-bodied and followed by very nice flavors of cherry, blackcurrant, chocolate, and a touch of sweet basil & dry tomato on the palate. Dry, silky but solid tannins, and end nicely with long length at the end.

Not much complexity, lighter in body. Not bad, just looking for more from this wine, in this region.
