Med + concentration which was not quite opaque. Light ruby core with salmon/orange rim. The nose was on the fresher side and only showing med intensity and complexity. Classic #leftbank nose but nothing popped out. A firm structure with med + tannin and acid. The palate was even more subdued showing medicinal red qualities. Length was med and boring. This lacked character and only time could help this wine. #chateaulafite #2ndwine #pauillac #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine

In an awesome drinking window and probably remains fresh for another few years. Still has some good fruit, but you’re also getting to the tertiary flavors as well. No need to decant but enjoy it evolve in the glass.
