Plums that are still smelling pretty fresh despite their 10 years. Some tobacco and dry dirt. Tannin, acid, and alcohol are pretty harmonious.

Tonight I have opened the 2005 Chateau Larrivaux. 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot.

The aromas are of black currant, blackberry, licorice, spice, and minerality.

The palate gives notes of black cherry, plum blackberry, spices,black pepper and minerality.

There is medium acidity, medium + sandy tannins with a medium mouth feel and medium finish. Not a bad wine for its age. With its good acidity and tannins has at least several more years.

Quite dry and oaky on the noise, a hint of spice somewhere and a subtle note of chocolate, on the palate however it’s much lighter and a touch thin, a little dry with fairly soft tannins, benefits from breathing a little.

Rose, vanilla, berry nose. Very tight sour to the middle of the tongue. More tannins, than flavor.

A little past it’s peak, it did not stand up as well as I thought it would
