Overlooked vintage and ready to drink. Tons of graphite, cedar, old leather. Slightly leaner, elegant palate.

Very light and soft, as the 1989 was last week.

Classic Bordeaux, from an overlooked vintage. Great primary cassis and red currant fruits are now accompanying secondary bouquet notes of graphite, leather, and earth. Apologize for the filter on the image, I was drinking!

After 5 hours decanted. Much improved. And yes I still have my Xmas tree up.

Needs some serious air time. Tightly wound, pencil, dusty dirt, may be a tiny bit corked or flawed. Bummer so far.

First experience drinking. Amazing ! raspberry jam, vanilla, clove, dried violet, well-balance & great structure. Didn't want it to end

Classic Bordeaux here, not the most complex but certainly well made, fragrant red fruits and the smell of fall. #nywe14
