A baby. Lots of acidity and tannin. A long life ahead of this but enjoyable now with food.

This afternoon at lunch we had open the 2011 Chateau Lynch Bages. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. A very productive and enjoyable lunch.

At open the nose was quite muted. We had to vigorously swirl in order to get the notes of dark fruit, dark cherry, chocolate, tobacco, herbal notes, and a minerality.

On the palate the dark cherry comes through nicely with dark plum following to the mid palate, blackberry, black currant, tobacco, a fine licorice and mocha.

This is a full bodied wine with medium + acidity, medium + chewy tannins which leads to a long enjoyable finish. It all worked together well with the New York Strip Steak that was a true delight.

Continue having a wonderful week and please, nothing is more important then your safety. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
