Gorgeous floral aromas of rose and violet, matched by blackberry, cassis, sweet spice, cedar, cinnamon, dark chocolate, vanilla, and hints of red plum and cherry. On the palate, full bodied with grippy tannins but a nice smooth mouthfeel, hints of mineral and crushed rock. Pleasing to sip for an experienced wine drinker, pair with red meat and heartier dishes if less exposed to fuller reds. Will develop at least 10 years

Man what a steal! 18 year old Medoc AOC, showing both mature and youthful fruit character, a little dusty leather, pipe tobacco, ever so slightest hint of brett. The palate really delivered more than I expected--broad and mouth filling, tannins have grip but have that ironed out feel that is my favorite thing about aged Bordeaux. K&L $25!

Excellent with the Doug's perfect tri-tip. Very mineral style claret with tons of cut. Not nearly as ripe as most 97's.

Friday night steak and claret with the best value Cabernet at K&L! 18 years old, fresh, but also full of the nuances that only time will bring- and $25!!! This dry Bordeaux is for grown ups who don't want RS in their Cabernet.

Herbaceous, cedar, and leather on the front nose. Finishes with berry and red currant fruit. Tremendous value for a mature red wine.

Right where it needs to be. A mature Medoc with tons of focused red fruit. Truly a pleasure.

Excellent example of an old and nicely aged wine, what can you ask more from this price?
Primary, secondary and tertiary aromas are still there, slightly fading but fairly clearly perceptible.
On the palate still refreshing with some acidity and mature tannins Wine is mature+ drink now
