Black currant, black pepper, blackberries, chocolate, coffee. Medium to full bodied, good tannins and acidity. I think it will hold well.

I'm so torn with this wine.. (and yes, I know it is infanticide, but I always like seeing what these young Margauxs have to offer before they sleep for a while.) Amyway- I'm torn because the wine is actually quite enjoyable once it opens up (about 3-4 hrs in), but it is missing that signature Margaux scent that may develop with age.

Dark plummy fruit both on the nose and the palate, a touch of chocolate and dark-roasted coffee beans. Tannins are definitely daunting and a bit austere, but it seems this is in for the long haul. With time it becomes chewy and dark, laden with black cassis fruit.. almost new world in style. A hint of violet develops on the nose.

Would appease a Napa cab fan who doesn't mind a nice dry, tannic finish, but I'll hold off on more until the perfume becomes more Margaux-esque.

So rich! Lush scents of black fruit, vanilla and forest floor. Brewed espresso, leather, black plum and spice. Finish that is a mile long. Best served with wonderful friends!

Probably a bit young. It's certainly tightly wound. Bright red and blue fruit at the first. Medium tannin. Spice, including anise, and Forrest floor. After a couple of hours, the tannins seem oddly firmer. Picking up more chocolate and tobacco notes, along with plum. Really great wine. I'll need to sit on my other bottles for a few years, though.

Great Value. Let me say that again - Great Value. Bordeaux style and Margaux pedigree at a price that makes this a $ Pick for 2017.
