Opened the 2009 vintage in May 2020. Definitely showing it’s age. Deep purple with a little orange (my wife says brown) around the rim. Regardless it ages nicely.
Smell: leather, old wood (not oak just like an old barn) earth, has a bit of a mineral tinge.
Taste: dark to black fruit. Plum. Earth notes as well. Truffle. Bold and tannic. Highish acid. Dry.

Overall very classic right bank. Very good wine but too bold to drink more than a bottle. Will blow out the pallet for the next flavor. Eat something hardy. Steak or game. Duck might be nice. Save it for the last bottle of the night or the only bottle.

Save it for your friends don’t waste it on the in-laws.

Delicious, berry, spice and just a touch of smoke. Great finish. Same profile as the Larrivet, just a little thinner.
