Good structure and could use a little more time (2010), but excellent value ($15 for half bottle)! Dark fruits and touches of oak.

Far from approachable at present. Certainly at a closed period in its life; you can sense the fruit lingering in there somewhere but for now it's barricaded in by a savoury, somewhat chewy, tannic defence. There's potential, but this doesn't seem to quite live up to the vintage's expectations, particularly where left-bank wines are concerned.

Bordeaux tasting at Classic Wines. Ruby red. Nose was very tight nothing really happening, maybe needs more air (most likely). Moderate to low tannins (5/10) but seemed more integrated than the raphael, no spikes just smooth.

Tight nose of black fruits and earth. The flavor a are about the same with a fair amount of tannins.

Really great wine. Dark, concentrated and full phenolic ripeness and complexity. Fantastic and a great value. Drinks like 2000 d'Armailhac did from magnum versus 750 format.
