Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.

Painfully young. Underripe raspberries, black cherries, charcoal, black tea on the nose. Graphite, blackberries, and underbrush on the palate with a monster tannic finish. Needs so much time. I called this ‘12 Left Bank.

Paired with 96 and 85 LB for fun. Dark, opaque and purple. Over the top with its fruit and teeth chattering tannins. Great to see what these start like and where they go in 20-40 years.

Wonderful Bordeaux with loads of development let to occur. This 2014 is a very big wine that should mature well over the next 20 years.

That's a fantastic bottle. So good and so young. Very smooth with little tannic overload.
