Blackberries, dark cherries, lots of cigar, lead pencil, cooked green pepper, dark moist soil, dry gravel, leathery, decent acid, round earthier fruit finish. I would hold another 5 years before opening. Second wine from Pichon Baron.

A little lamb & Pauillac for Sunday night. This '12 is quite primary at 5 years and shows great promise for the future. Lots of dense cassis fruit and very good balancing acidity.

Lots of vanilla, some spice, cassis, smooth tannins, over outstanding with our steak.

Very nice 2nd wine. 2012 not nearly as impressive as their 05 I had last year. This could use a bit of age to mellow out but drink nice young
