Says a lot about the night when this is mid-bottom of pack. Young, hauntingly fresh. Cassis and toasted brioche. Feminine. Should improve.

Classic wine, classic vintage. Ripe black fruit- blackberry and prune integrated with structure and a touch of spice. Polished, powerful and balanced.

Perhaps going through a bit of a tight phase, yet this wine was incredibly attractive with dark fruits and tobacco in spades. What a treat to try this wine from 2005, my all time favorite Bordeaux vintage.

Perfect example of a young, ready-to-enjoy-now, Second Growth Bordeaux, very supple and approachable.

Very soft and silky red fruit profile, w some tobacco notes. Not as powerful as I'd have expected, but quite long...

This goes in the spank bank. Lovely, haunting juice.

Double mag decanted 4 hours and provided by @Dan Blackwell for his annual lamb fest. A bright spot on a May gray day above bird rock/North Pacific Beach. Very full and nice St. Julien. Cedar pulp, cassis, pencil lead and dark fruit. Ready now but will benefit from 5-10 yrs cellaring.
