One of my fave 00 Bdx wines. Presents perfectly with bright cherries and saddle leather on the nose, followed by graphite and black fruits on the mid palate. This will sail on for years since the tannins and acidity are still very prominent. Unbeatable 2nd wine from Las Cases.

First tried about a year ago. A blend of 72% Cab Sauv, 27% Merlot and 1% Cab Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of black fruit and floral aromas. On the palate blackberry, currant and plum flavors with cacao and oak notes. Fine grainy tannins, medium+ finish, good balance ending with fruit, earthy herbs and cedar notes.

Showed more like a Cali cabernet than a claret. Inky, sweet, crushed dark fruit.

Fell off quickly - dominant wafts of VA, Brett, and tertiary aromas didn’t improve with a decant.

Not the easiest St Julien to drink. A little too plump and distracted.

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a yummy one from a great vintage in Bordeaux.

This is a very enjoyable Left Bank Bordeaux with some nice age.

Showing red and black fruits with earth, chocolates, tobacco leaf, light oak, vegetables, wet leaves, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tart pomegranates.

This 24 year old is showing great complexity and mouthfeel at this point. Elegant and tasty.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins.

Robert Parker 90 points.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$120.

Great value for aged Bordeaux - lots of tertiary - soy, leather, mushrooms but also fruit - some years to go before peaking! A nice treat on Easter with rack of lamb after a long week!

Smooth, brick red with brown edges. Light tannins. Medium body. Perfumed nose. Subtle blackberries, plums, and lavender notes.
