Dark red / mahogany color. Still very fresh and lively. Aromas cassis, sandalwood, and savory herbs. Medium bodied but builds towards a long finish with dark berry fruits and some coffee. tannic structure still If not slightly astringent. Day two was better than when I opened it last night. Needs decanting if you’re planning to drink soon. Drinking nicely now for sure

A bit stemmy and astringent on initial pop but came into its own with air. Surprisingly complex and elegant nose of sweet blackberries, black cherry, cedar, violets, leather and green tobacco leaf. Palate is fairly rustic texturally but lots of sweet black and red fruit beneath the tannic and mineral surface, with a pleasing green tinge on the finish. Overachiever!

Dry and bitter initially but little remaining fruit creeps out after about an hour. Not very complex but rather nice in an old fashioned way. Refined tannins characteristic of the vintage.

Despite warnings this might be fading this bottle was in excellent shape and had life ahead of it. Nothing fancy here, just really solid Bordeaux for the price. Deep fruit, cigar box, long finish. Needs some air and still great on day 2. Unmistakably Bordeaux.

Drink it now because it seems to be at its peak. Magnificent nose of spice box, cedar, underbrush and kirsch. Fruit is beginning to fade a bit though

Open. A good wine. Great nose. Thin palate. Perfect for food.

Moss on the nose, cassis on the palate. Soft tannins, beautiful & balanced.
