Another generous gift for my Cabernet tasting matching the theme of 2009. I have not tasted this producer before mainly trying Cos and Montrose from Saint Estephe previously. It was more full bodied and silky than expected reflecting the vintage. Black and red fruits. A little lost for words after the Lafite to be honest. Most enjoyable however.

Last wine of ‘17. After one day open: blackberry, mulberry and meat juices. Iron and dark minerals. Finishes a bit hot. Grippy; good for at least another 7-10 years. #stestephe #bordeaux

Started out a little muddy, but with some air some really lovely delineated fruit, cedar, herbal and clay-ey character

And the Bordeaux gods have landed. Soft, very soft, big dark red fruit that just lingers with tannin. Such a fantastic balance of acidity. Decantered for one hour. I love this wine!

1hr decant. Lovely nose of earth and tar. Wine lacks depth and fruit, but does have some nice Bordeaux elements. There is even some teriyaki sauce, which I know is weird. Short finish. Wish this packed more of a punch!

Great wine for an intermediate price. Bold for a French wine without being overly earthy. Was a Thursday nite dinner with friends fireside at the Deerpath Inn. Friends, fire and wine - always a winning combo!
