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.

Blueberries and flowers on the nose. Medium bodied with light tannins. Nice finish. Wanted to try a right bank Bordeaux, prefer the heavier left bank mostly cab blends. Personal preference obviously.

On the nose is blueberry, plum and dark berries and dark cherry. On the palate medium body, soft tannins, and currant which fades into a very long, nice blueberry finish.

Heavy currants wrapped in light leather. Zero tannins. Typical 09.
