This is a lightweight, well-balanced, classic Bordeaux. Red fruit, some floral notes, not much depth or complexity. Drink up.

Cherry and black licorice nose, very soft tannins, not quite the fruit it once had but a great Leathery Bordeaux.

Corked two months ago, was concerned the rest of our stock was gone. Not so! I was ready to convert and give up on the French. The nose is terrific and while not super complex, the wine still delivers. Bit of spice, wood, black cherry. Plenty of tannin left, maybe try another in a year or two.

Soft, well balanced. Wish it was a little more complex.
