Subtle but well balanced. The nose is what makes this wine.

Good Cab. Smelling it is like opening a pencil box. Good notes of graphite, cedar, and blackberry with good viscosity and a good little finish.

-03 was a pretty good year on the left bank. This 16-year-old wine has great concentration, its age slightly evident from color and rim; the nose is large, dusty, earthy and minerally notes around the dark fruit, green apple, and other (good) pyrazine notes; mouthfeel is round with good structure of high acids, frontoftheteeth tannins, and likely higher than indicated alcohol, not so much fruit, and a long mushroomy earthy finish. Worked wonders with my pasta bolognese.

Thirty percent new oak is their carmenere in here or not. Masculine pencil lead undertones oaky should open up

The oak overwhelms a bit at this stage.

Way out of balance. High acidity, low alcohol, light body, high tannins. Bone dry. One dimensional red fruit. Maybe a bit redeeming back to the nose that has a bit of meatiness and earth. So sour...
