Velvety texture, elegant with dried blackberries, cassis, sousbise, cedar, hints of earth and dried sage leaves with just a subtle animalistic character to it. Not as long or complex as the Rothschild of same vintage.

Dark fruit. Very broad and opulent. With a lot of air, the tannins have resolved. Still a bit of a monster of a wine but the fruit is intense and very pretty. Lovely stuff.

Still quite fresh and young. Spent some hours open in the bottle and then 2-3 in a decanter. The lead pencil and tobacco notes are there, but less dominant than in something younger. Getting longer and more mouthcoating as the night goes on, with no sign of slowing down. Looking for more but knowing it'll be there sometime, soon? Kind of an anise note showing up. Orcas NYE

One of the best wines I have had all year. Aging well although ready to enjoy now.
