Well...it sure does taste like wine! But really, the greats can’t always meet every expectation and I’m sad to say this was a lackluster bottle. Some fruit, some tobacco and leather - everything you’d expect from Bordeaux. Weak given its vintage and produced. On its way to an early decline.

Mature but still holding on to a lot of fruit. Reconfirmed Pessac/Graves as my favorite Bordeaux subregion. Wow!
