The nose has notes of blackberry, fig, nutmeg, cocoa and vanilla. On the palate is blackberry, black currant, black olive and some dark chocolate. For $17.99 this is not a bad Bordeaux.

Grape wood, yellow oak leaves, baked apple, dried blackberry, jasmine incense smoke, pine bark, cran -black cherry fragrances, elegant mouthfeel, aggressive tannin initially, though balanced between fruit and oak, red currant, cranberry, stone-licking, dusty and dry. Twigs and berries on the stiff fruit and cedar wood finish. I like this immensely, but certainly not for everyone. This is cave tools made of flint for gritty combat, not fruit bombs dropped by mad scientists in the hopes of sugaring the masses to death. Hirsute cave ladies, the moon is full, I think you know it's time for bone rattling, plaintive ululating and the coming of Boognish.

Right bank again.
Newsa time to open up, 4h decant and still v. closed.
Black cherry, dark plum, cedar wood, a whiff of v. dark chocolate and (dried) orange peel. Surprisingly big yet there’s some elegance to it. Starts showing a bit of fresh black currant leaf & menthol after some time.
On the palate this is on the richer, burlier side - beefy tannins that only slowly mellow. Nice juicy acidity and dark fruit with a savoury kick. I miss the cool, gravelly elegance of the left bank a bit here.
This is a v. proper Bordeaux, yet not quite my style. Good with food though.

Magnum pour 2015. Big fruity plum, red cherry and light earth, opened up nicely. Good drying finish and calcium mineral.
