Raspberry chocolate aroma, silky medium tannins and a slightly sharp but simple non-complex finish

Nice nose, decent structure but not yet open, and maybe it will never have enough flavor, but i am hoping. Quite simple now.

College football Saturday night, chalky tannins and muted fruit. There just isn't much going on here for me. Should've known better and had a beer instead!

Sick over the past week= wine hasn't been on the menu. Still, Christmas with family required a magnum although I couldn't smell or taste it much. Santa approved.

World Of Wines 12/2/16. Lovely soft tannins, berry start with vanilla and graphite finish. 2009 vintage.

Ample aromas of graphite, cigar box, ripe black cherry, vanilla and cloves. Soft and smooth as a Margaux should be.

This night perhaps is getting away from us.

Light, not overpowering with flavor for a wine like this. Let breathe for 6 hours--seemed to release its hint of dark cherry and earth. Paired well with a fire and pork loin with roasted vegetables. 2009 vintage. Would enjoy it again. Thank you France....
