Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.

This is in a good spot now, but will benefit from another 3-5years. A little modern in style as it seems Napa cab-esque...baked fruit spectrum (red, blue and black), graphite, and baking spices on the nose with herbal notes and bay leaf on the palate. I called this ‘12 Left Bank. Thanks

Good stuff from a great vintage. Aromas of blackcurrant, cedar, mushroom, menthol and vanilla. Palate is well balanced and finish is smooth and suprisingly fruity with some smokey infusion. This will develop nicely in the years to come but it is drinking nicely now.

One of my of time favourite Margauxs & this toop vintage @ £65-£85 is a great price for the top quality 😉 good now but great in 5 more years 👍

🏵 93 points with more potential

🍇 71% Cabernet Sauvignon & 29% Merlot

🍷 Opaque blackened ruby

👃 Rich dark creamy blackcurrants through soft smoked oak, soggy earth & dark plum w/ minerals, gooey cocoa, broken pencil lead & melted liquorice

👄 Med body of silky goo mashed blackcurrant in an earthy mineral infused mocha liquorice splatter w/ a touch of fine dry tannins

🎯 Long rich dry bitter ground mocha liquorice dark fruit boom 💥
