Reserved at first, but opened up nicely after an hour in the decanter.

Hint of vanilla on the nose, dark fruit, very well balance with intense tannin. Delicious wine, especially after it opened up.

Wine Essentials: Classic World Wine Tour @iceculinary

Institute of Culinary Education wine tasting class.

Super great wine. Dark intense colors.

Round, lush smell. Rich ripe dark blackberry and plums.

Dense taste, dusty, tannic.

Red meats roasted, complex sauces best food pairing.

Very nice. Great fruit and lively flavors. Plenty of berries and good finish. Last bottle and showing well tonight. Still it's time to enjoy. Ready to go.

Well a bit of a surprise. Better than expected. Finish is still a bit short and bity. A bit spicy.

A little tired. Drink up. This is the 2nd 2008 St Emilion in 2 days and both have a disappointing short finish. Rather flat.
