Black truffle. Mushroom. Leather. Minerality Limestone. Each wine has a moment. This one people usually either love or don’t love.

Deep purple with a ripeness. Going to see how this opens. More to follow!

Beautiful nose. Firing on all cylinders. Chocolate and cassis, hint of brett integrated with new oak. On the palate, soft, rather mature. Very rounded and integrated. this has aged gracefully and is really delivering for me.

1995. Medium garnet in the glass, this had a beautiful nose of sweet tobacco, brown liquorice in the sun, light tones of stewed savory bell pepper, concentrated notes of black raspberry liqueur, and an underlying tamari savoriness (very light, not at the level that I get on Musar). It’s the next day and I’m still getting flashbacks.
In the mouth it felt a bit short. Medium body, medium alcohol, medium acid, definitely plusher than Leoville Barton (both due to youth and probably because this is Right Bank / merlot based vs. Left Bank / cab based). Think a light fur coat. The finish is mostly acid and tannins though. Mostly I smelled this.

LM and BD shared their experience and put this wine into context: This is a solid example but will get better in 5-10 years. Still a bit young to their taste.

Score: Between 9 and 9.5. Despite the promise of improving with age, I was so stoked on this that I will probably drink my other bottle soon-ish. As in tonight. As in I might be drinking it right now.

Vineyard: 80% merlot, 18% cab franc, 2% cab
