Tart black plum, a cola finish capped with a hint of expresso and wet cigar.

Because... Steak! Chateau Garraud 2009 Lalande de Pomerol! It's just a baby. Hour plus decant showed a soft palate with nice blueberry mixed with dark red fruits, followed by hints of earthy veggies hiding in the background. Finish has a good bit of black tea and tanninic astringency without being out of place. Let's look at you in 4 years.

At a great place - could even still age another 3-5. Perfectly balanced with tertiary notes and live fruit.

The legend of Right Bank 2015s continues: What a great #lalandedepomerol wine to drink with friends you haven’t seen in a while over ribeye steaks. I opened it a 1/2 hour early and then we decanted another 30 minutes. After it came alive in the glass we enjoyed wafts of bramble berry - nice weight on the palette, some mineral and wood layers, lovely soft tannins and the right amount of acidity in the backbone. It paired perfectly with Montreal seasoning marinated ribeyes which brought out a bit of spice at the finish. This a fantastic value at Total Wine for $27.

Fruity, big flavors. Needs to breathe a bit before drinking. Good with a cigar
