Spicy nose, #oldbordeaux #2005 still very young. Vanilla black fruits allspice and cedar... But the savory component not gelling with the fruity...Medium plus staining and tears..

Big fruit concentration and power, maybe I've got a new world palate but god this 09 vintage is damned enjoyable. Hot rocks and fine grained tannin with red tobacco and graphite.

Initially, this wine was off putting. There is oxidative notes and a sweatiness to it. Very complex wine with real balance.

Big, powerful Bordeaux (77% Merlot, 23% Cab). Returned home from mini-vacation to 55 degrees and rain, so a tannic, dark Bordeaux seemed in order.

Very deep color. Dark cherry flavor but a little short or real fruit. Lots of tannins. 70% Merlot. Earthy finish.

This white Bordeaux (not red- edit function does not work) was extraordinary. Nose of vanilla and lime, body rich and full and creamy with a wonderful long and complex finish.
