JFK is someone I greatly admire, along with Churchill, MLK and Margaret Thatcher. Nice to learn a little more about him, while drinking a 2010 Bdx stunner.
Frankly, this is a Napa clone. Lovely notes of barrel toast, sandalwood, truffle and maraschino cherries, which drift onto the palette. Excellent poise and tannic structure. This wine may very well out-live me. For those of you that enjoy the texture and sweetness of Napa blends, give this a try...

For those of us that like to snoop around, on that middle shelf in the background is: Haut Brion, Harlan, Lafite, Scarlett reserve, Realm and Grange. If you are ever in the NY/NY area, come get some love. Let's see some other pics with organ extensions, please 😃

FRUIT! FRUIT! FRUIT!
Probably would dance even more in-bottle a few more years. Teeny bit of sediment thrown, but almost unnoticeable.

Lush and opulent no doubt, but especially successful in retaining firm, ripe black fruit character, supported by chocolate and charcoal, and massive tannins, commensurate with its fruit concentration.

Highly concentrated, tannic, and expressive of ripe black fruit and chocolate.

Glorious! Outstanding.
Rich, but not quite ready. But all the components are there. Give it at least another 3 - 5 years.

Great color, huge nose. Rich mouth but finishes a bit tannic. Give 8+ years to mellow..

Deep red, opaque, almost black color. Aroma of charcoal, leather, roasted plums and unsweetened dark chocolate. Plums, black cherries, graphite on the palate followed by grippy tannins
