Nice wine. Beautiful for the price. Several years of age worthy now and for the next 5 years.

A lovely Bordeaux still very young despite is 10 years of age, lovely tempting deep garnet color, inviting aromas of cassis, black current, black peeper, black cherries, coffee, vanilla and earthiness, a full elegant body with firm dry tannins, the oak is still very present and needs a few more years to open up, acidity is lovely and finish is long and complex. A good Saint Emilion, from a truly successful vintage. My score 89, drink to 2024

My go to house Bordeaux that I originally purchased 8 cases after tasting it off of a local restaurant list. $32 Great QPR that will provide many years of enjoyment displaying blackberry, plum, earth, tobacco, pepper, expresso, & floral spices. Structured with medium weight & good length.
