From magnum. Surprised at how well this is drinking and one of my favorite wines from a vintage I hate. No stewed fruit here.

Friday night and I had a taste for a Bordeaux, so I stopped on my way home and picked up the 2014 Château Léoville Barton from Saint-Julien. A beautiful expression of a classical Left Bank Bordeaux Blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

The nose reveals beautiful dark fruit of black raspberry, black cherry, black plum, black currant, a touch of strawberry, graphite, mocha, vanilla, clove and an earthy component.

On the palate you have sweet dark fruit that is beautifully rounded that continues through with black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black currant, plum, licorice, a herbal note and some rich earth.

The wine is medium to full bodied with a racey medium + acidity and medium + chewy tannins that leads right into a long fruit filled finish. A nice wine that has a lot of years ahead of it if you would like to cellar this gem. Now this is definitely how I like to start my weekend off right. Have a safe an enjoyable weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Really a nice wine. Licorice, Rich, plummy fruit, umami, “soup stock” savoriness.

Earthy funk quickly evolved into pencil & cigar box followed by cassis & a lovely faint floral perfume ~ still fairly tannic but showing solid underlying array of dark fruits ~ lovely anniversary wine enjoyed w boiled peanut & wild mushroom pate, butterbean hummus, creamy lump blue crab& artichoke dip, followed by slow roasted NC Duck and Heritage Pork Chop

Very smooth and mature. Hints in tobacco, balanced with some fruit touch of blackberries on the finish. Improves with air. Very nice BORDEAUX
