Medium to full bodied, dense and very good structure, black currants, earth, tobacco, graphite and cedar with hints of espresso and a silky smooth finish with soft tannins.

Beautiful bright red florals nose. Bright light & dark ripe, red fruits. Stones, rich earth, showing lots of wood early, great acidity and nicely polished finish.

Still strutting its stuff. Round, but textured. Great fruit profile with character and depth. Sage and tobacco, with ripe black fruits. Perfect weight on the mid-palate. Awesome juice!
This came from
@Mo Salem’s cellar. Thank you, Mo.

Classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855, is a close neighbor of Château Mouton Rothschild. A blend of 50% Cab Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% of Cab Franc & 2% Petit Verdot. A wonderful wine with the higher % of Merlot than usual, ripe fruit, citrus and spice aromas. Cherry, plum and currant flavors with a nice mineral edge, creamy soft tannins, lingering finish ending with a earthy mineral tang. Very Nice!
