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

Date night with Cinnamon and steak & claret!!!! I bought this bottle on prearrival and tonight was a great night to open it. The wine had it all; animal earth, rich silky texture and no heaviness whatsoever. Paired with chef Marco's 16oz. Piemontese ribeye steak it was a great experience.

Never give up on 'bad' vintages from great producers.

Perfect timing. The 2004 is showing beautifully now. Just the right amount of Brett and big floral notes. Great structure and bright fruit.

Beautiful. All so balanced. Deep but sleek fruit. Great acid balance. A real pleasure
