Black fruits, almost plum, on the nose. Aromas of a perfumed shoulder, a pretty barnyard girl who works hard but always manages to smell beguiling. Thinner on the palate than I hoped, but a delight.

Muscular and rich wine with spicy notes, intense and need time to age more

Accidently opened but a nice surprise. Still very young. Stewed fruits, leather and tobacco.

No human remains were used in the making of this beautiful Bordeaux blend from Graves :)
Although I did get some subtle meat on the nose.
