Beautiful montage of earth, dirt, brett, and musty, dusty tannins. Gorgeous, unapologetically funky Bordeaux.

Textbook Bordeaux, 2004 so age and less exuberant of a vintage, foils well to the veal and the duck. @Table in Wash DC, great farm to table resto.

Very good if you can get at a lower price. Very dry with some earth and tannins, dark red fruits.

Tried another bottle A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, Ruby with brown edges. Aromas of dark berry fruit and earth. On the palate, tart cherry and plum with soft pepper spice show good balance with round tannins. The finish was medium in length and enjoyable, lost its luster.
