What an interesting wine. First pour started off with some volatility on the nose, and a soupy, murky palate that hinted at porcini and decayed leaves as well as red fruit. I had low expectations for the bottle over the course of the evening, as it seemed ready to fall apart. Then the opposite happened - it came together, tightened up, to where the last glass was a elegant, refined, cohesive glass of red fruits with an herbal twinge. The VA remained, but this was very enjoyable nonetheless. Edit: reading notes on the same vintage below I wonder about the cork quality in this particular bottle

I’m pretty sure I liked the ‘12 better. If you’re positioned to be a refreshing Bordeaux, might as well live that dream.

Cassis, tobacco, green bell pepper. Super primary. Stiff tannin. Nice acid. Sénéjac is a dependable Bordeaux when you want a Bordeaux.

Dense black fruit that envelopes the mouth, teeming with licorice, and forest/incense aromatics. It will be one of my great regrets if I fail to acquire more of this.

Deliciously meaty and savory. Lovely ripe black fruit. Wonderful - A proper Bordeaux.
